In a world where worth is measured by busyness and product, it is refreshing to know that’s not how things work in God’s economy. We are saved by God’s gift of grace. Our salvation is not the result of our own efforts. Thank you, Jesus. Literally.
Because Jesus willingly took our sins on his perfect sinless self, our debt was paid on that hill long ago. We can rest in the assurance Christ’s payment is all that is required for our salvation.
We don’t need to argue or plead our case before God the Righteous Judge. Jesus’ payment was more than enough. True, our worth is not measured by our deeds, but because of the love and gratitude we have for our Savior, we desire to serve him. There’s a big difference between the two.
There is no fear of wondering whether we hit the quota for the week. There are no Employee of the Month posters splashed around heaven. No charts compare our efforts with others.
Legalism was removed when Jesus rose from the grave, and established a new covenant between God and his people.
There is no other argument.
Jesus died for each of us. That is enough. He is the Way, Truth, and Life. No one can come to the Father except through surrendering to Christ as Lord of their life.
Have you ever struggled with measuring your worth through busyness and product?

For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God’s gift, so that no one can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9 (GNT)
I wish you well.
