Good works don't save you. But when you are saved, you do good works.
Do It Well
Every night when I was in Guatemala, Neal encouraged us with very similar words.
"What we're doing here is God's work. That means we are to do it to the best of our ability. Yes, we get tired. Yes, it's tedious. But we need to continue. It's not a race. Do the best you can, even if that means going slowly."
Do It Quietly
Boast in the Lord, not in yourself. If you tell the story, make sure you give credit where credit is due. Don't twist it around. It's His story. Not ours.
Do it for Christ
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Grace and peace, friends,
