How to Overcome Legalism

“When the mind dwells upon self, it is turned away from Christ, the source of strength and life. Hence it is Satan’s constant effort to keep the attention diverted from the Saviour and thus prevent the union and communion of the soul with Christ. The pleasures of the world, life’s cares and perplexities and sorrows, the faults of others, or your own faults and imperfections—to any or all of these he will seek to divert the mind. Do not be misled by his devices. Many who are really conscientious, and who desire to live for God, he too often leads to dwell upon their own faults and weaknesses, and thus by separating them from Christ he hopes to gain the victory. We should not make self the center and indulge anxiety and fear as to whether we shall be saved. All this turns the soul away from the Source of our strength. Commit the keeping of your soul to God, and trust in Him. Talk and think of Jesus. Let self be lost in Him. Put away all doubt; dismiss your fears. Say with the apostle Paul, “I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” (Galatians 2:20). Rest in God. He is able to keep that which you have committed to Him. If you will leave yourself in His hands, He will bring you off more than conqueror through Him that has loved you.” {SC 71}

Daejeon International Church

Welcome to Daejeon International SDA Church!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus our Lord,

May God’s peace and blessing of health be upon you. I praise God that you have visited our website. As a citizen of the kingdom of heaven, it is our privilege to worship the Creator wherever we go in this world.

As we are living in the “toes” of world history, let us strive to gather together in the Name of Jesus Christ, visiting and encouraging one another by the Word of God, so that the enemy shall not devour us with waves of worldly concerns and trials.

The Bible says that love is the most powerful force in the world, which is sufficient to “cover over a multitude of sins.” (1Pet 4:8) This is our one and only goal to reach: to experience and exercise the mighty power of love by the Holy Spirit. If God of love is for us, who can be against? (Rom. 8:31) “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” (Rom. 8:35)

As the day of His glory is approaching near, we are witnessing the world agonizing all the more as such in labor pain, but let us not forget how God has mightily led His people through the wilderness with His everlasting power of love.

We look forward to meeting you and share brotherly fellowship with you. Please feel free to contact us for chatting over a meal.

In Christ

Jeongwon “Daniel” Lee
