“But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, “Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:30-31)
It is not what you or I do, but what the Lord has done that makes all of this possible. See this clearly. All our actions in faith are a response to what He has done first. We are saved by grace, therefor all of what we do is a part of the salvation journey. We do not do to earn, but to respond to the love which He has first given us. The only boast we have is in the Lord. Boast then in Him.
Lord, I have heard so many conflicting things and have even thought in terms of receiving Your wrath when I sin forgetting that You have done what needs to be done that I would continue walking with You. Guide me O Lord in the way of truth that I would humbly walk with You knowing that I am completely dependant upon You for all I need, Guide me in Your salvation.
Lord Jesus, God in the flesh, You have come to lead the way for those who believe. Help me to not make more, nor less of the truth of salvation than what You have revealed. Guide me according to what You have revealed to walk humbly with You in and through all things. Lead me to do what is right in Your sight that I would do what is pleasing in the Father’s eyes. Amen.
