Why You Do It

Do you work at your salvation, or do you work out your salvation?

Do you do things in order to be someone, or do you do things because of who you are?

Do you move toward your wholeness in Christ, or do you move from your wholeness in Christ?

That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3:6) The outward actions often look the same, but the inward trajectory determines whether it’s dead human religion or life in the Spirit.

What you do matters. Just not as much as why you do it.
