PARTNER WITH GOD (4)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Partner with God

a) There are two great privileges that God has given to man. The first is salvation, which is the privilege to enter into an intimate and eternal relationship with God, to be unified with Him in love.

b) The second greatest privilege is to serve God with good works, which He performs through us as we allow Him to do so. Both of these privileges are a result of God’s grace.

(Ephesians 2:8-10 NIV)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

(Matthew 5:16 NKJV)
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. 

2. Other Scriptures

(Matthew 16:24-27) 
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. {25} “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. {26} “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? {27} “For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

(Matthew 20:26-28) 
“Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. {27} “And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave; {28} “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

(Matthew 25:21) 
“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’


The End ...
