Depend On Jesus First

Dear Friends,

After receiving a thoughtful comment about hard work, passion and depending on God, it is good to have a clear understanding on what is of paramount priority. Dependence upon God must come first. This is the premise of salvation. Jesus has already done the hard work for us by taking upon Himself our sins while on the cross. We must believe in His work on the cross. However, after our salvation, we are rewarded by our works in Christ. Your vital union with Christ lays the foundation for any work God calls you to. Anything you do for Jesus is passionate when you do it because you love Him. Let passion for Jesus fuel the joy in your heart in all the work He calls you to.

We are saved through faith. We are rewarded by our works in Christ Jesus. Jesus is the Crux of all belief, salvation, work and reward. When your works are premised upon salvation, you will naturally depend upon Jesus knowing that without Him, you cannot perform what He calls you to do. Then your works will produce much fruit. You can work and be very busy, but if your work is done in the carnal flesh and not in submission to His Spirit, it will not produce everlasting fruit.

Jesus blesses you every time you obey His Word and His voice in your heart. The little kind word you give someone when you’re feeling cranky or quiet act of kindness you show when no on is looking is always acknowledged by Him. Salvation literally changes the meaning of work as we know it. Because with Jesus, whatever you do, you do for Him. And whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord, and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24
