Almost fifteen years ago, my family and I visited China. We had a relative in Canton, who was responsible for distribution of food. When we visited him, we were treated to the best in everyway. In China, whether you think it is fair or not, relationship, or guanxi, is everything. People are not always rewarded based on ability, but based on your connectedness.


2 Corinthians 1:19-20 tells us, "For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you ... was not ’Yes’ and ’No,’ but in him it has always been ’Yes.’ For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ’Yes’ in Christ."


In other words, certain promises or rewards God gives to us purely because of our relationship with Jesus Christ. For instance, God rewards those who trust in Jesus Christ with the forgiveness of sins, peace with God and eternal life. We can’t earn these, but we have them because we placed our trust in Jesus Christ.
