What do you do it for?

I once had a person ask me “what is the least amount you can do to know you can go to heaven?”  You really wonder if a person wants to go if they ask a question like this. What if I asked my boss at work what is the least amount I could do to keep my job?  Or what if I asked my spouse what is the least I have to do to love them?  What about asking your kids what is the least you have to do to raise them?

If an employee, spouse, or parent asked these questions I would really wonder.

Based on my belief I see that Christ has offered Grace to save me.  If His grace is enough then why should I do anything?  The reason is out of gratitude.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.  Colossians 3:15-17 (NIV)

It seems that a lot of people are asking these questions with their actions. They say they believe yet they do nothing. They say they love and they do nothing.  On the other hand some are doing so much they don’t even know why they are doing it.

Are you living a life of gratitude?  Do you complain about everything?  What are you doing things for?  Take a moment and thank God for the little things.  Be grateful for everything and live it to the fullest!
