We’ve got a race to run but we run it with a trophy in our hand. We’ve got a fight to fight but we fight it from a position of victory. We’ve got a work to do, but we work from a position of rest because of the finished work of Christ. We’re in and we’re accepted!
The other day I was talking to one young man in our church meeting and I said “Are you a Christian?” He said “No I’m not but I’m working on it” and I said, “Well I know what you mean but you know, you ought to do just the opposite. Quit your working and just run up the white flag of absolute unconditional surrender and trust the finished work of Christ.
