“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
Performance-Based Or Grace-Based?
Scripture: “Those…hired last…you paid…the same as…us.” Matthew 20:12 NCV (New Century Version)
In Christ’s parable five different groups of workers are hired. The first group complained when those who worked only the last hour, got paid the same wages as those who worked all day. They are typical of performance-based Christians. They think that because they avoid certain sins, God’s getting a good deal. Instead of rejoicing with those who come late to the kingdom, they’re resentful. They’re easy to spot because they’ve three characteristics:
I thank God for His grace and mercy and I want to always be a grace-based Christian. What about you? Performance-based or Grace-based?
God bless and have a Jesus filled week!
