“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,” - 2 Timothy 1:9
We did not ask for God to sacrifice Jesus. But he did. It is grace that He did. Everyone who was not at the top is now equal with those who are. God is part of our lives, when we let Him. He isn’t here to give you season baseball tickets or extra points in home games, He is here to give you eternal life and numerous blessings.
Turn aside from self serving behaviour. Serve God, and He will bless you. If you build God’s house, He will build yours. Don’t waste time trying to do everything yourself. There is no joy in doing things your way, so as to show you are better than those doing it their way. Such pettiness is hurtful. Do things because God wants you to. Show praise because God has blessed you. Love one another, because God loves you.
