At 26; What have I accomplished?

*****
I don’t think what I have accomplished is what makes me celebrate my life as a Christian.
No, it’s what has been given to me freely; knowing him who died for me that I may live for him.
In this new life, I have come to know Jesus better through a faithful teaching and study of his Word.
As a result, I have grown to love Jesus more and enjoyed serving his people with the Gospel.
And have become even more convinced of the amazing privilege it is to be a rescued child of God living for King Jesus now ahead of his eternal reign in the new creation.
And this is beyond priceless.
At 26, I’m humbled by what Jesus has accomplished in me through his Word and his Church and the good works he has laid before me to walk in them.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2. 
To many more years of knowing him, serving him and living with him in eternal life.
