Is Your Christian Life Based On Luck Or Grace?

I have heard people, even Christians, say "Good luck" to some goal or endeavor. Years ago, when I was publishing my first book, GOD'S HEALING HOPE:BREAKING THE STRONGHOLDS OF WRONG THINKING, a lady in my church wished me luck. It saddened me that she said it because she has a successful career, which I am sure she did not build on luck. That moment made me wonder how much some Christians believe in the sovereignty and grace of God.

As Christians, our lives and dreams are not built upon luck. They should be centered around God's grace. We must put in a great deal of hard, diligent, and persistent effort. Success is spelled "WORK." However, even with hard work, there are things over which we have no control. We need a "lucky break." God's grace is our "lucky break." He does the unexpected and the things we cannot make happen. Let's don't put the Christian life on the same level as winning the lottery. Of course, if you did win the lottery, then you should consider it to be an act of God's grace.

So, don't wish another Christian "Good luck." Would it not be much better to say, "God's grace be upon you?"

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
