Let's Eat - Finished Work of Christ

Justin Magness
This past Sunday, Pastor Matt continued the “Let’s Eat” series with the truth that our holiness in the eyes of Christ is not based on our performance on this Earth, but the Holy Spirit that was poured richly into our hearts when we put our faith in Jesus.I spent the majority of my walk in faith believing that I was secure from an eternity in Hell, but I had a lot of work to do every day to stay in favor and be holy in Christ. This led to burnout and frustration. Jesus never intended for us to spend our lives striving to earn His favor, but for us to spend our lives knowing who we are in Christ and walking in that.
Paul clearly states in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 who we WERE before Christ, and who we are NOW are in Christ when we put our faith in him. We were washed, sanctified, and justified in the name of Jesus by the Spirit of our God.

"Jesus never intended for us to spend our lives striving to earn His Favor."

Have confidence in the finished work of Christ in our lives and let that be your guide in this world.  When life’s obstacles come our way, we can stand on the promise that we have been made Holy. There is nothing we can do to change that because there was nothing we did to earn it to begin with.
So rest in that and walk in a manner worthy of our calling!
