Just A Thought For January 30January 30, 2017
I’m sure you’ve heard the term ‘sweat equity’. You earn it by doing things to improve your home or life, doing it in your own strength and ability. That can work in our real world but not for our spiritual lives. There’s no ‘sweat equity’ needed. Many believers believe and are told they have to work at being spiritual otherwise they won’t win the prize at the end of the race. There is no sweat equity for your spiritual life. Jesus has already done everything so you don’t need to do anything. It’s just believing His finished work and receiving what He’s already provided for us. He has given all things that pertain to life and godliness. We negate the power of the resurrection and God’s love and grace when we feel we have to add something ourselves. It isn’t as if we could make our spiritual lives any better on our own merits. It won’t happen. It’s time we get back to the basics. It’s time we trust the Lord for all that He did for us and walk in that. He already did the sweat equity for you and me. Keep walking in His goodness and grace and you won’t sweat the big or little things.
