The Earning Is Over
The gospel loses its majesty when Christians believe they must work or serve or tithe in order to earn blessings from God. We become like elder brothers of the prodigal, working in the fields to earn what we have already been given.
However, we live best when we live by faith in the complete sufficiency of what Christ did for us. The earning is all done, and we can rest.
