God does not want us to perform in our relationship with Him. He, as the Initiator, always makes the first move because we are being led by the Spirit in response to what He is already doing.
Performance Christianity makes us responsible for our walk with God, but He loves the responsibility of teaching us who we are.
We no longer have to try to touch God and connect with Him by our own efforts.
In Jesus, He has given us the ability to completely leave our old nature and be born again. This is a tremendous gift because we took no part in it.
Now, we are fully alive to a BRAND NEW life in Jesus; we get to explore our resurrected identities in Christ as a response to what God initiated.
For more on leaving performance behind and responding to God’s initiative, watch the short clip above.
