DON’T BE CRUEL

Ephesians 2:2

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

 

LESSON

Everything we possess as believers is ours through and by the grace of God. We earned nothing we have received. We deserved nothing we have received. We purchased nothing we have received. Everything we have in Jesus Christ has been given to us by the free grace of Almighty God.

God has given us the gifts of His grace without asking for a single thing in return. He doesn’t expect us repay Him for grace. While God does not expect any return payments from us; He does expect a return on His investment. The work of grace in us results in some very real changes in our lives. These changes allow us to live for God. Our living for Him, according to His will brings glory to His name, and that is all He wants from us!

In the way that he has made us his and made us vessels that can be filled—and be useful—we are a finished product. We are God’s workmanship.

 

Memory Verse: Hebrews 5:9
