Who Are You Being?
Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It’s God’s gift from start to finish! We don’t play the major role. If we did, we’d probably go around bragging that we’d done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
– Ephesians 2:7-10 (MSG)
We, as human beings, love to make a list of things we want to change at the beginning of every year, but the one thing we all need to do is stop trying to be someone else. We need to just be who God created us to be because anything else is a step out of God’s will.
