It’s a problem many of us Christians face.

We got the salvation basics down alright.

Believe

Repent

Receive.

Declare.

Got it!

OK, so what now?

Somehow many of us fall into this trap that now we’re working for God.  Come judgment day we have to prove ourselves.

Did we accomplish anything for God or did we mess up?

We got this Holy Paranoia thing going on.  What am I supposed to be doing for The Lord?

What if I get it wrong?

No

No!

No!

Hello!

By grace we’re saved and by grace we grow.

The great Apostle Paul laid in all out in the book of Ephesians Chapter Two . . .

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

It’s all about letting God work on us.  We never can earn anything from God.

Yes we are His and we belong to Him.

But it’s never ever ever anything like punching a clock or meeting a quota or making a deadline.

He makes us into His image.

Only He knows the quota.

And the whole world will know when the deadline is upon His return!
