Real vs. Counterfeit Good Works

The Counterfeit (Self-Righteousness)- “It’s another day to serve the Lord.  I know that a really good, righteous person will try to never miss an opportunity to do a good deed.  And I want to be a really good, righteous person.”

The Authentic (Love) – “I am just so happy that God favors and accepts me so much. He sees me as pure as Jesus Himself.  There are no consequences for me when I mess up.  It just seems I want to help and love other people so much because I feel so happy.  I know I don’t need to do it if I don’t want to or don’t think I should.  I’m not afraid of God.  And I don’t feel bad about myself.”
