Dim Sum – Forever Running

Me Running

In the Far East and I expect everywhere else there are many who believe that good works will save their souls.

Daily they do better than even Christians in good deeds, kindnesses and selfless sacrifice. Always with the hope that their good works will save them from hell.

They give in donations to the needy, in time to charitable good works, in love to the unloved. However,  they have missed the point that God’s standard of perfection cannot be attained by good works. His standard is of perfection and it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one. No human is righteous save the God-Man Christ Jesus.

The differences between Christian belief and the other religions to the achievement of God’s standard of perfection are:

  • Christian belief is a personal relationship with God not just belief in a moral code.
  • Christianity starts off with the grace of God in God’s Son, Christ Jesus as the sacrifice, atonement and payment for the sins of whoever will accept Him. There is no payment for sin without a perfect sacrifice. No tainted human being can fulfil God’s requirement. Other religions begin with self and the motivation to do good works to pay for atonement of  sins.
  • In Christian belief and practice, good works follow the meeting of God’s standard of perfection in Christ Jesus and reflect His love and is in appreciation for the love received. In the other religions, there is forever running with good works but never catching up to  the perfect standard of God for the forgiveness of sins.
  • In Christian belief we can do nothing of ourselves, but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. In other religions, it is self that must strive to perfection through good works.

In Christian belief , there but for the grace of God go I, forever running and losing the race.

Will you be forever running or accepting the grace of God?
