It's not rules its relationship......God knows who are his. Keeping score is not the idea.
I was born again 50 years ago. I was like a feral animal when I was born again. I was afraid of God's will, what it may involve and what it would do to me. 50 years later, I fear not having God's will. I began to realise how much better God's will is for me.
God seeks our cooperation. He will not work on this earth apart from His people. He will have His plan and purpose fulfilled, but it will not be apart from those who are totally committed to the Kingdom of God. The good news is that we have the Lord Jesus living within to be our willingness.
If we entrust ourselves to Him, He will bring us to a place where we can be effective servant/sons. It's the most noble and glorious life, even though we may feel like we are the least of the least at times. God values things vastly differently from men. The person who cleans out the toilets may be more highly esteemed than the pastor in God's eyes. We all have a place in the Body. As long as we are working as a member of the Body, God is satisfied.
