It has been said, "Tell a big enough lie, repeat it enough times, and people will eventually believe it." From the beginning, Satan, has been spreading some pretty big lies about God. And yet, some of them have been repeated so often that we are tempted to believe them. This week we unwrap the lie that God's favor toward us is impacted by our behavior toward him. It's easy to think that our efforts to do good will lead God to give good to us. Instead we are reminded that, although we are unworthy of any good gift from God, he graciously carries out his ultimate purpose in our lives: to bring us to eternal life. Whether he sends good days or bad, our eternal salvation is his ultimate desire.
