The Chicken or the Egg? ~ May 6

The Chicken or the Egg?

It’s so confusing!

By faith in the name of Jesus, the man who you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see. Acts 3:15

When we accept God’s free gift of grace, we accept it by faith, but on the other hand, faith is a component of grace, and if we truly accept God’s grace, we will have faith.

God, and all He is, revolves around faith. But, does it all depend on love; or does everything hinge on hope. It can get confusing, trying to figure out which is the chicken, which is the egg, and which one comes first! But I suppose you’ve heard who the author of confusion is?

That’s why I like to keep it simple. If I had to say what comes first, I’d say it’s heeding. The first step in our relationship with God is heeding when He beckons us to come to Him. We merely have to say, “Here I am, Lord; lead, and I will follow.”

It’s between you and God, and it’s simple. He loves you, and He wants the best for you. He sent His Son—the very essence of grace—and through Christ, we have faith, hope, love, and all the good things of God.
