God is at Work

12 Oct

From start to finish, he is the One who does it all…

We fear that if we do nothing, nothing will happen. After salvation the old habit of ‘doing’ reasserts itself and we begin our old self-efforts again… He has done everything on the Cross for our forgiveness and he will do everything in us for our deliverance. In both cases He is the doer. ‘It is God that worketh in you.’
