Jesus – What You Need to Know – 74

Unless we remember our desperate need for grace, and Jesus’ willingness to offer it through His death on the cross, we can grow smug in our daily walk. Our acts of obedience can be perceived as grace payments, and our worship as an avenue of spiritual pride.

We cannot compete for God’s favor through our own efforts. All we can do is receive His best and give our best. The Lamb is His best, and our best is our whole being, for better or worst.  For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water.  And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.” (Rev 7:17 NIV)
