The Crossfire Minute publishes short messages of Good News to encourage leaders in churches across the world. The messages emanate from Pastor Harvey Wittmier’s ministry at Crossfire International Alliance, an international Apostolic ministry as well as Crossfire Church, in Englewood, Colorado.
Good Deeds Will Come Naturally
This week I’m talking about the topic of grace. Grace is ‘undeserved favor and acceptance by God’. Grace is not a doctrine. Grace is Jesus Christ. Many of us accept Jesus, the undeserved gift of favor and acceptance, then try to perform to prove to people and to God that we are acceptable. This is not new. In Luke Chapter 4 the devil tried to get Jesus to perform to prove He was God’s son. Jesus rejected that approach. If you’ve accepted Jesus, you’ve made Him Lord of your life, you don’t have to perform certain good deeds to prove it. Any good deeds that you do will come naturally out of the life He gave you. You won’t have to check off a daily list of good deeds to perform for God.
