Application: Even if you were the only person at work who ever fell short, God would pursue you just the same. You belong to Him, and you’re a part of your team for a reason. You will find it easier to share the value you have to offer when you remember that you are valuable to God.
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?
