Worth Repeating

“The people of God do not serve Him in order to be forgiven but because we are forgiven. When believers serve only because they feel guilty if the don’t, it’s as though they serve with a ball and chain dragging from their ankles. There’s no love in that kind of service, only labor. There’s no joy, only obligation and drudgery. But Christians aren’t prisoners who should serve in God’s Kingdom grudgingly because of guilt. We can serve willingly because Christ’s death freed us from guilt.”
