Works and Your Status With God

Cloudland State Park

Many times most people including believers are ‘status conscious’. Granted the world may operate in the belief that your status in society is most important, but how does that infiltrate your believing system as a Christian? Here’s a great truth: With and In Jesus there is no status. As Paul puts it in Galatians 3:28, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”. Don’t let your walk with the Lord be hampered in believing your works enable you to have a better status with God. Frankly, works are not the end-all to gaining more favor or blessings with God. By placing your works as the end-all to His blessings and salvation your emphasis is totally on you. Incorrect emphasis. As a believer you’re saved, sanctified, righteous, and blessed because you believe the new covenant of God’s love in the finished work of Jesus for you. Yes, works have their place when you’re established in what Jesus has already done for you, and then your works will be an outflow out of His love operating in your life.
