As a Christian I want to continue growing in my faith, continually surrendering my life to Christ, so He may do the good works through me that were planned long ago. It’s not about doing more and more and more, to try to earn heaven. I can never earn heaven. I thank my Lord Jesus for salvation, and I want to live to please my Savior. I want to live as one after God’s own heart.
1 Thessalonians 4:1-2
As for other matters, brothers and sisters, we instructed you how to live in order to please God, as in fact you are living. Now we ask you and urge you in the Lord Jesus to do this more and more. 2 For you know what instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus.
May the Lord help me live this out today.
