Simply To The Cross I Cling

How easily we revert, after coming to Christ for salvation, to trusting in our works to earn His favor! Each time we do something with the attitude that He will accept us more readily because of our actions, however, we slip right back into self-righteousness. We forget that our salvation depends solely on the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

For far too many years, I pointed my various ministry involvements as evidence of my  salvation, ignoring the truth that I used my “‘service” to gain recognition and to assure myself that God would commend me for being a “good and faithful servant.” Now I grieve over such a self-aggrandizing attitude, ashamed that I turned the privilege of working for Him into filthy rags. Yet I praise the Lord that, by His grace, I can hide myself in Him!
