What Grace Produces

Good works…and our zeal to do them…is a result of this gift of grace in Jesus our redeemer. Grace changes our relationship to God…grace trains us to surrender our own ways and turn to God’s ways…and grace (ONLY grace) convinces us what good works are for…they are NOT for earning or keeping a relationship with God. If that is what you are after, it will only ever amount to pretending and performing…it will be an act…a moral zero-sum game. But if you are fully convinced that God is good and ALL he commands is good…that you are loved…that Jesus is God’s grace for you…then good works are simply grateful responses of a person who wants to be like the one who loves and delights in them most.
