You have already Qualified

If you enter into any of the big events in South Africa (like the Comrades, Two Oceans etc) you have to qualify in order to start the race. You can pay and enter before hand, but you only get to take part if you prove that you have qualified. Now, there is nothing wrong with this system at all - in fact, it is very important to make sure that people are fit enough to participate in these events.

However, when we impose this 'system' onto our spiritual lives, we may begin to think that we could never qualify for Eternal life. We would always fall short of the qualifying standards that are set before us. Thankfully Jesus has already made sure that our qualification is taken care of.

"....and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light." - Colossians 1:12

Let us live as people who know that we are already accepted by Jesus. Let us take off all that hinders us from running the good race. 

Living in Grace
