‘If we were arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict us?’
That was the challenge we were given one Sunday evening. I reviewed my past week and mentally started listing my ‘good deeds.’ I seemed to add up quite a few and was starting to feel smug.
Than I realised it was not about me; it was about what God wanted me to do, not what I wanted and what I had done. My ‘good works’ were like filthy rags. Looking at it this way, my score wasn’t so good.
It is only by doing His will that my actions will be accepted as ‘gold, silver and precious stones.’ I also realised that I needed to stand up and be counted, so that there is enough evidence against me.
