Grace has made everything we need in life available to us. This came about because of the finished works of Jesus; now, all we need to do to lay hold of the blessings is to believe. However, although faith is the proper response to what He did, we must ask ourselves how to break it down and specifically apply faith to our lives. The motives behind our actions are important; there is nothing wrong with works as long as they are works of faith and not of the law, in an attempt to earn favor from God. We accomplish nothing by trying to do what Jesus already did; instead, we put our faith to work by meditating on God’s Word until we find the place of peace in which He wants us to be. It is real work to continue meditating on Jesus’ finished works and refuse to be moved out of our peace, especially when we feel the pressures of the world. However, this is the only work God expects from us.
