I wish to encourage you this morning with the privilege we have of not only being recipients of God’s grace, but of sharing that very same grace with others.
In our Lord’s kindness and wisdom, He has enabled every believer in Jesus Christ with a persoanlly tailored giftedness unique to each of us. His ingenious creativity is so woeful, that we are usually unaware of the intrinsic nature of His grace giftedness implanted within our characters. We simply think that we are doing what we want, yet, the Lord observes that we are doing and expressing His character through His implanted grace grift, crafted and customised precisely to deliver His grace via our words and behaviour.
Now, the wonder of it all, is that while we think we are going about our daily activities, the Lord is accomplishing His foreknown will through our behaviour as Spirit filled believers. We become, by the ministry of the Holy Spirit, the administers of Christ’s grace into the lives of those we rub shoulders with. Therefore, as each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace… (1 Peter 4:10).
Today, realise that …God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).
Let us live Christ, and enjoy the opportunities that today brings of being a child of the risen Lord Jesus Christ, for His glory and our joy.
Together in Christ: Lincoln Forlong
