Friends in Christ Weekly Message
March 21, 2009
Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
Ephesians 2:7-10 (Message*)
God showers grace and kindness upon us. Isn't that wonderful! We do need to trust him, and why shouldn't we? And we have the high honor of joining him in the work he does.
Do you trust God enough to let God shower grace and kindness upon you? Are you joining God in his work?
