Application: When we look for fulfillment and satisfaction from our work, the stress and demands we face can throw even the best of us off balance. But when we get our fulfillment and satisfaction from our relationship with God, He gives us the strength we need to move forward in our work with confidence and success.
We were created by God and we were saved through God’s grace. Both were God’s gifts to us, without us having to do a single thing. The number and grandness of our works have no sway on whether God grants us the gift of being saved. So then, why should we care about doing good works?
