"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith —and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." - Ephesians 2:6-10
Now read it again, but taking note of the phrase "in Christ" - It is repeated 3 times in this passage, so clearly Paul wanted us to note something about it. For me, it reminds me that I can do nothing worthwhile or eternal unless I do it "in Christ". I can do a lot of things IN.... Church, Culture, Society, Family, Fun, and so on, but they will only be temporary. When we do things 'In Christ' there is true power and legacy.
Please remember to support the African Enterprise Mission Week. It has started in Pietermaritzburg and will be carrying on all week. Get to a venue near you for 7pm meetings - If you are needing to reconnect with God then don't miss out on these meetings please. We are attending the events hosted at the NG Kerk Hayfields this week.
Living in Grace
