“I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.” Ecclesiastes 3:14
There’s an old saying that it’s not a good idea to ‘over egg the pudding’. Those times when you find yourself spoiling the end product by not stepping away when you’ve done enough.
Sometimes we imagine we need to do more and more to guarantee God’s love and favour in our lives. We perceive that the good news of the gospel is just too good to be true and that the message of grace couldn’t possibly be as straightforward as Scripture says it is. We reason that we need to repent more, try harder and work at making things right.
No amount of following rules and regulations will increase or diminish the love that God has for you – He loves you completely and utterly. You can’t put a cost on this free gift!
Today’s Scripture reminds us what God has done in you; for you; through you and to you - will last forever. Not just for a day, a year, a decade – forever! It can’t be reduced and it’s impossible to increase. Take a moment to savour that thought. You are the workmanship of Christ and He loves you.
