Why work for the Lord? Do disciples of Jesus obey him and work so that we can earn God’s love? Absolutely not. He could not love us more than he does. Of course the danger on the other side of that coin is that we are not only saved by this grace but paralyzed by it. In this case we believe in Jesus and never do anything about it. In his letter to the Ephesians Paul reminds us that disciples of Jesus are raised to life and recreated in Christ so that we may accomplish the good works God always knew we could do. Disciples are God’s masterpiece of grace. Let’s fulfill his purpose for our lives. Welcome to worship with Tallowood!
