What Do I Do Now? ~ July 30

What Do I Do Now?

Don’t be skeert!

Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. Romans 5:11

The key word is “received”. We did not earn reconciliation; it was a gift from God through Jesus, and all we did was receive His gift. This is one of the most important principles of Christianity; we cannot earn our salvation, but need merely accept it. We cannot do our way into God’s grace.

I have seen many a new Christian with a frightened look upon their face that asks the question, “What do I do now?” My answer: Thank God, seek Him, receive His love, and watch as your love for Him grows with every new revelation He presents to you. And all the while, rejoice. I emphasize “all” in the last sentence because it is important that we remain joyful and at peace as we seek God. The amazing thing is, the more we seek Him, the more peace and joy He gives to us.

It’s a circle of giving and receiving; God loves us, we receive His love, we return His love, He receives our love, He loves us more, we love Him more, and it just keeps growing and getting better forever!

Receive His love!
