It is a work of grace. A work of grace is this: By mercy and truth iniquity is purged. (Proverbs 16.6)
There is no way to God, to the Father, but through Christ and no foundation can any man lay but Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians chapter 3) And according to 1 Corinthians chapter 3 let every man be careful how he builds thereon, for every man's works shall be tried by fire. If we build true works upon our salvation we shall receive reward. If we build false works upon our salvation they shall be burned, yet we shall be saved; yet, as it were by fire.
Let a work of grace work in your life. Pray to that end; for the best thing that you can do for yourself, your loved ones, and your neighbor is to seek and pursue that which is right in God's eyes, whatever that might be. It doesn't matter who it is, or what your circumstance, or what the appearance of things might be. Ask God for that right in your life. Seek and pursue it. God can guide you and Christ can save you. According to scriptures Christ stands at the door and knocks. If you open the door he will enter in and sup with you.
But there is a false humility
That masks a subtle, spiritual pride
Beneath which is fear, and ignorance, and selfishnessWherein a man sows unto the flesh
And not unto God.
Be in love, not with the things of this world,
But with the word of God
There is no higher aim, no greater purpose in life than this.
A man once said that in the long run a man usually hits what he aims for.
Always let your journey begin at the foot of the cross.
And don't be so much a product of your culture
But more a child of God.
