21st May 2020 - A Word From The Pastors Desk
Pastor Eugene Hor reminds us this week from Romans 3:23-24 and the life of John Newton that God works on the principle of grace i.e. God saves and accepts the underserving. It's religion and secularism that works on the principle of works and performance i.e. religion and secularism says you must be good enough, you must pay back or you must earn you way.
God's Amazing Grace For The Undeserving
Sometimes we think that God operates on the principle of our performance. Getting right with God or securing God’s approval depends on our work and our effort. Let me say to you that the Bible never teaches that. You cannot earn your way into his family and you cannot work your way into his good books. God doesn’t work on a performance scale where he judges you on the basis of whether your good works in life outweighs your bad works. God actually works on the principle of grace i.e. he gives us what we don’t deserve.
