You Get the Credit
It’s Saturday morning. Your parents need to run some errands, so they leave a whole list of chores for you and your sister to do. You work and work and work while your sister watches cartoons and eats candy and breaks stuff and makes a mess.
When your parents come home, they walk in the room and tell your sister what a great job she did. Would you let them praise her? No way! You would come running into the room screaming, “BUT I DID IT! She did nothing, and I did everything!” You want the credit for what you did!
On this earth, Jesus worked and worked and worked, doing every single thing his Father asked of him. Each one of us wastes, hurts people’s feelings, disobeys him, and makes a mess. Still, because of Jesus’ work, when God comes back to take us home, this is how it’s going to sound: “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, my Father has blessed you! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world’” (Matthew 25:34).
The way it works in God’s plan is that Jesus does all the work, but you get all the credit. Now you don’t have to worry when it’s time for you to go home. You know you get to hear, “Good job! You’re a good and faithful servant! Come and share your master’s happiness.”
You get the credit for what Jesus did. And Jesus couldn’t be happier.
Dear Jesus, thank you for doing it all for me! Amen.
