STOP and I mean STOP trying to earn what you could never earn. You nor I can will never qualify to earn God’s grace. God extends His grace freely to all. Our past and future mistakes can never blot out God’s forgiveness, love, and generosity for us in Christ Jesus. God’s (2 Cor 5:15). Jerry Bridges said, “Our worst days are never so bad that you are beyond the reach of God’s grace. And your best days are never so good that you are beyond the need of God’s grace.” Therefore, STOP TRYING TO EARN GOD’S FAVOR! You can’t do it. Nothing you can do can merit the grace of God. And on top of that (here’s the real eye opener), attempting to earn it actually causes you to lose it!

Pray with me:

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us infinitely more than we deserve. Your love isn’t something we could ever earn or merit – no matter how hard we tried and how “good” we are. Please open our eyes to understand Your ways more and more every day, as we seek to be perfected only by Your grace and never by our works. In Jesus’ name, amen and amen!
