PARTNER WITH GOD (7)

(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

(John 9:2-4) 
And His disciples asked Him, saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” {3} Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. {4} “I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.

(John 10:32) 
Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?”

(John 10:37-38) 
“If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; {38} “but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”


The End ...
