The shocking truth that we discover in the Gospel is that Christ has already run that race for us while we weren’t looking, and has won! (Benjamin Dunn)
As Joseph Prince puts it, we are a silent partner in all that God has done through Jesus. All we have to do is believe.
“And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16:30-31 KJV).
What must I do? We’ve heard that question from our own mouths. What do we have to do to please God? What must I do to receive the blessings? What must I do to get healed? In the Old Testament you might have to dip seven times in the Jordan River.
We are a nation of do it yourself people—DIY. But Jesus has done all that ever needs to be done. We have nothing to do but believe in what He has already finished on the Cross. Just Believe. Everyone can do it. It all about Jesus.
