1 Corinthians 15:10 – But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
The apostle Paul knew the grace of God on a personal level. Grace is the unmerited favor of God and Paul received that favor in an abundant way. Paul was nothing without the work of the Lord and the constant enabling of the Holy Spirit in his life. But notice that Paul did not sit back and do nothing, he worked very hard and the Lord blessed his efforts.
Has God been good to you? Have you enjoyed God’s unmerited favor? You see, God was so good to Paul, he couldn’t help but work hard for Him. So, too, if you are one who truly embraces and enjoys the grace of God, you will be more engaged and willingly serve Him. You just won’t be able to stop yourself. Your challenge this week is to consider how good God has been to you and how gracious He has been to you, then let His grace flow through you and touch the lives of others.
Grace be with you,
