Does it really matter whether you are a Pawn or a King?
We waste way too much of life trying to be something that we're not, doing things we weren't made to do, that were created for others with different gifts. And all the while the life God meant for us speeds by...
Just be yourself & really get into the game.
Now God has us where he wants us, with all the time in this world and the next to shower grace and kindness upon us in Christ Jesus. Saving is all his idea, and all his work. All we do is trust him enough to let him do it. It's God's gift from start to finish! We don't play the major role. If we did, we'd probably go around bragging that we'd done the whole thing! No, we neither make nor save ourselves. God does both the making and saving. He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.
