TRUTH!!!!

 

John 6:28-29 is very revealing:

“Therefore they said to Him, ‘What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?’ [LAW] Jesus answered and said to them, ‘This is the work of God that you believe in Him whom He has sent.’”[GRACE]

 

“There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.” Hebrews 4:9, 10

 

Our Christian life is simply a dependant walk of faith.  And faith always says, “Thank you”……period!!!!!!  THEREFORE, the only response to our Father’s marvelous grace is simply to say, “Thank you!”
