Home Church Video ~ The Work of God is Rest For Us

Throughout the course of my ministry I have encountered many Christians who struggle with the “performance mindset”. It is the belief that our standing with God and people is based on how well we perform rather than on what Jesus completed in his redemptive work.

Sadly, many of us have been taught this performance mindset by friends, family, and churches that have judged us as failures according to some standard of their own design. If we don’t measure up, we don’t fit in.

It is also common to hear of people brought up in legalistic churches that have made it sound like the New Testament is simply an extension of the Old Testament law. Whatever they hear in the New Testament sounds like laws that must be obeyed for fear of losing relationship with God and his church.

In this home church message we focus in on some wonderful and uplifting Scriptures that show that the only performance that really matters is what God has performed on our behalf. We no longer live as though under the law, but as beloved children who live by grace through faith.

Knowing how much God has already worked for us gives us the freedom to enjoy this work by faith. God will not fail to complete the work he has already begun in all who have received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
