The Gift: You Don’t Have to Figure it All Out
The work Jesus did on the cross for us, the finished work, did not just pay for our sins and give us eternal life. It really is oh, so much more. It is the incredible gift He has given us—His life in exchange for ours, that we might walk in freedom!
But we find ourselves saying to God, “Just tell me what I’m supposed to do, and I will do it.” This is backward thinking. We must first believe that what HE says about us is true and trust Him. Out of that trust, we must take the first step. He will provide the steps that follow. It is not ours to “figure it all out.”
