Many of you are seeking God’s grace and try to do well, but are missing the whole purpose. If it’s because of fear rather than genuine devotion, grace is not bestowed upon you. Instead of being a chore, it’s a heart filled with joy. The difference is what you are cultivating. You’ve forgotten God, so you must cultivate Him. If you are trying to prevent a judging God or an angry God from finding your faults, you stay guilty in error. Being with God is expressing His love. Cultivate this, not fear.
Jesus (Feb 4, 2015)
