My desire is to grapple together here over how well off we are with God through Christ,
and to live from His opinion of us.

The Gospel Works
Just as breathing, drinking, opening the eyes, movement and learning to speak is normal for a child and not work, so it is for the Christian. Hearing and reading the magnificent gospel encourages and stimulates us to listen and read all the more, and to pray and share what we find. These are not works, but fruit of the Spirit's work in us. When we seem to be without works, our first response is not to works, but to get some gospel—the good stuff. God knows how the gospel nourishes and works for us, and, like babes, we're growing.
