Grace filled living

Monday December 18th, Luke 3: 10 "What should we do then?" the crowd asked. 11 John answered, "The man with two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same." 12 Tax collectors also came to be baptized. "Teacher," they asked, "what should we do?" 13 "Don't collect any more than you are required to," he told them. 14 Then some soldiers asked him, "And what should we do?" He replied, "Don't extort money and don't accuse people falsely—be content with your pay." They were not all called to go start a church or follow as disciples. What they were called to do was be just in what they already do, and in that way, help bring God’s justice into the world. John did not even ask for “good works,” but rather a cessation of “bad works.” John’s call is for a return to grace filled living. It may not be rocket science, but it is the beginning of living.
