“And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;” – Colossians 3:23
But shouldn’t I do the best I can because I desire to please God?
Because I love God I desire to please Him
Will I ever get there?
It doesn’t seem so, but it’s not about what I am achieving as much as it’s about what I am becoming.
Abraham was instructed to sacrifice Issac to God. But what if God never intends to accept or allow this sacrifice to take place? If God is all knowing then the plan and the outcome are already known by God. If on the other hand God does not know what Abraham will do and what’s going to happen then God is not God, but god.
So which is it?
Is God different?
Is man free?
Just an illusion
“We that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.” Romans 15:1-3
As a Christian what is the ethic?
So what do we do?
Can you earn a gift?
You can’t save yourself, and neither can I.
The law saves no one. The law is God’s standard. We don’t obey the law in order to earn Gods love. We obey the law because we love God.
