THE ULTIMATE REWARD YOU CAN NEVER EARN
Have you ever tried to reach a goal that you really wanted? A career path, relationship, financial or special status...
Usually, there are strategic steps: a clear and concise path laid out and all you have to do is follow the rules to earn the status.
But that's not the end is it? Once you reach that level, now you have to maintain it, and the risk is always there that you could fall back down the ladder.
It's exhausting but it's predictable.
But what about your spiritual life?
Jesus turns all that upside down, with a reward we can't work for, earn or 'good' our way to.
Unlike the striving required in life, true peace and fulfilment comes - not from trying to BE enough - but knowing that we can never get there on our own and resting on God's completeness.
We just RECEIVE 'it': the ultimate reward (free and unmerited love from God), when we say 'I BELIEVE'.
Are you hiding parts of yourself from God, waiting to be good enough to come to Him?
Set down your striving and pick up His un-earnable gift.
It's waiting for you, today and every day.
