Are you an “I Got This” Christian trying to prove to yourself, God and everybody else that you have life by the horns? This produces a disastrous life that ultimately makes you and everybody around you sick.
The level by which we live in glad submission to Him out of genuine gratitude for His grace, authority and power, is the level that we will experience eternal value, victory and joy!

Is your life producing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)? Is it a testimony of the Gospel of Christ at work in you or a testimony of religious legalism and cultural influence?

In contrast to the daily required Old Covenant animal sacrifices, etc. in the Tabernacle/Temple that God declared as expectations from His people, the New Covenant now identifies the proper and expected response by God’s people to His Glory and Salvation is the proclamation of His Gospel to those in the church and those far from God AS WELL AS the practical, visible, and tangible giving of ourselves to others. This does not earn our salvation but it is absolutely what God expects His children to do.
Continue the good that Christ has and is doing for you by sacrificially giving your time and talents to bless others! (13:6a)
Give money! (13:16b)
Challenge: How are you using your time, abilities and money to put a smile on God’s face? How are you serving people in the local church? How are you using your finances to financially support the local church? How are you using your time, abilities and money to bless and serve those who are far from God that you do life?
