A Legalists Great Remedy…Do Nothing

Great post from David Mathis at the Desiring God blog. When questioned about how to be productive, he responds:

I would actually say: realize that you don’t have to be productive. By this I mean: your significance does not come from your productivity. It comes from Christ, who obeyed God perfectly on our behalf such that our significance and standing before God comes from him, not anything we do. Then, on that basis, we pursue good works (which is what productivity is) and do so eagerly, as it says in Titus 2:14.

Can I get an “Amen”?
