Mulligan or perfect score?

It has been a crazy week, my apologies for not posting in a few days.
Today, while walking at the YMCA, I heard a great Gospel quote from Issues Etc. It was from a broadcast this summer with a gentleman from Pirate Christian radio was talking about Rick Warren. On Christmas Eve 2007 on Fox News, Rick Warren said that "Jesus came to bring us a new mulligan" (referring to golf of course!). However, this implies that we have to do something in order to receive salvation. We will have a new start, but we still have more to do. A Gospel-centered approach would say that after a round of golf, our Lord hands us a perfect scorecard! Everything completed by Christ and nothing by us. May this be our focus as a church and in our lives as Christians!
