Being a Christian Isn’t About Being Good, but Doing Good

Let me be clear: God saves us by GRACE through FAITH.

But faith is not faith until it is acted upon.

We falsely view righteousness or being a “goody-goody” as “doing no wrong.”  So we practice “being good.”  It’s “Don’t do this.  Don’t do that.  And you’re Okay.”  But the problem with that approach is this: you can do nothing wrong and still do nothing RIGHT.  Goodness is not the absence of badness.  It means doing something right.

Do you really think God’s ultimate dream for us is doing nothing wrong?  Is God’s ultimate plan a weekly pilgrimage to the pew?  Is God’s highest aim the absence of sin?
