Hello beautiful children of God! How are you all doing? I am sure you all know that we are all very excited about our new collection tomorrow! Well, there is a special announcement going live on our Instagram page, alongside our launch! Don’t forget to join me! In light of this announcement, let us get right into the message!
As Christians, it is important to do works! Yes! As we live Christ-like lives; we have the fruits of the Spirits! All these attributes cause us to do “good works.” As we go through life, we help people out, we support people and the church and many other things! All this is fine! However, it is important that we know that it is not the good works that saves us!
What saves us? Well, it is the Faith we have that Christ died on the cross to save our sins! And He resurrected on the third day! He paid the price for all our transgressions and sins! That is how we can justify our salvation! This is not based on the good works! At times, we tend to forget the real reason we are Christians, and we get consumed by the works that we do! Some people even get obsessed with their service to God! They start to put their service in/ for the church above their Faith in God!
Some think that they can leverage their good works for “favors” from God! But it doesn’t work that way! Don’t get me wrong, God rewards and honors all that we do for Him! Most importantly, He looks at the heart! He looks at the sources of our actions- are we doing these good works for God or ourselves?
That is why it is important to stay humble in Christ! My work at Sammie’s Ministries can easily become my obsession, however, I make a conscious effort to know that this is not about me, Sammie, it is about fulfilling the Great Commission- spreading the Gospel to all nations! In everything I do, I give the Glory to God! I make sure to pause and say it- even when I receive a text of praise! I have to force myself to just say thank you to God and give all the glory to Him! It is very easy to let all the praise and reward for your works to derail you! Each day, I ask God to give me strength to do what He has planned for my life! I ask Him to help me to stay focused on Him!!
My dear brother and sister, that is the only way! For if you depend on your flesh, it will fail you! To ensure you put your Faith in Christ over your works for Christ, go back to Him! Ask Him to help you to stay humble in His Word! Ask Him to help you to yearn for Him and His Word! Then you will be growing in Faith and growing in Christ! You do not need to say a very long prayer! Just close your eyes wherever you are (and with a sincere heart) ask God to help to keep Him as your main focus! That all! With that, you have to take action! Make the conscious effort to always TRULY acknowledge God from the heart! You are on the right track fam! God bless you!
