Application: God places people around us who are marginalized and quietly struggling, not just in the community, but also at work. Look for someone at work who needs a little extra encouragement, friendship or support. When you find ways to help those in need around you at work, you show the love of Christ and show your love for Christ.
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?
