To be Christ follower is to be a person of initiative, for God Himself takes initiatives. He was the One who said; “Let there be” and “Let us make” at the beginning of creation in the Book of Genesis. God took the initiative too, in salvation. We were “dead… live in sin… subject to God’s anger” (Ephesians 2:1, 3) but by God’s own initiative, Paul explained why He is willing to saved us;
“God so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead (It is by God’s grace that you have been saved!)” (Ephesians 2:4-5, NLT).
God be with you
