Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

What are You Working For?

The Newsboys led worship at Fellowship a few weeks ago and it was a truly amazing experience. Having never seen them live, I had no idea what they bring to the table. I also had no idea that frontman Peter Fuller preaches as well as he sings.

At the conclusion of the new song I am Free, Peter gave a passionate call to true freedom. I haven't been able to get it out of my head.

Freedom is held in His hand
Reach out and touch it today
Freedom in your head
Freedom in your heart
Freedom in your emotions
Freedom in your marriage
Freedom in every area of your life
It's through the blood
It's through the Word
It's through the spiritual family
It's with a purpose
The price has been paid
The price has been paid

What are you working for?

The price has been paid

Everyday, I ask myself that question: What am I working for? No matter how many times I hear otherwise, it's so easy to think the burden is on us. That we have to earn our salvation. That we have to earn peace and freedom. That we have to earn God's grace and His blessings for this life. We think that if we just work hard enough, things will work out.

As Christians, we have an incredible opportunity to serve Christ with everything we have and to reach out with love to others in all that we do. But in the end, everything is in His hands.
