What can the grace of God do for us, and what are we to do with God’s grace?
The Heavenly Father will pour out all His grace in abundance upon us; God is the God of abundance. Then we will have all sufficiency in all things. Because the Father’s nature is such, He always provides in abundance. Therefore, we will be sufficient in all things.
Not only having all sufficiency in all things, but we will also have abundance left over for His good works.
So grace and power are abundant for all sufficiency in all things, and having abundance for His good works. Then the cycle begins again. After we give for His good works, He makes grace abound in all areas of our lives available to us again. Notice it says, God makes all grace abound. Not just some grace.
God has given us different gifts of grace for doing the works of God.
Some people have the gift of grace to prophesy according to their faith.
Another has the gift of grace to serve. Others have the gift of grace to teach. Some have the gift of grace to encourage.
Some businessmen have the gift of grace to give, to give generously.
Some people have the gift of grace to be leaders.
Some have the gift of grace to show God’s mercy because they have supernatural divine mercy upon them that others have not.
However, most importantly, we all began by serving because the church needed help. Then God puts His gift of grace upon each one to serve beyond the standard. So we must recognise the gift of grace God pours out on us and the areas where we do not have grace.
God entrusts us with the gift of grace to serve in different areas.
Our grace to serve differs in different areas. So then, we are to be stewards of the grace entrusted to us.
Firstly, we are to be faithful with that grace, and then we are to be good stewards of that grace.
We are to be good stewards with whatever God has entrusted us, and then we will be good stewards of His grace.
Living in the will of God is part of His plan, enabling us to continue receiving His grace.
However, continuing where God did not put us, we will continuously fail to receive His grace.
When we are completely out of God’s plan, we fail to receive His grace.
The worst enemy to receiving His grace is the root of bitterness.
