Quit Trying

25 Sep

There are some believers who may not articulate it, but in their hearts they believe that without Jesus they can still succeed. By believing and acting on this, they fall from the high place of God’s grace (His unmerited favor) back into the law, back into trying to merit and deserve success by their own efforts…
Beloved, let’s learn quickly that without Jesus, we cannot succeed, and if we choose not to respond to His unmerited favor, He will not force it on us… Jesus is waiting for us to come to the end of ourselves.

    I will forever be grateful for the ministry of Joseph Prince. His words constantly highlight the matchlessness of Jesus in the most wonderful, life-bringing way. Fantastic bible teacher too. What a gift to the Body of a Christ.
