Abundance of Grace
The more we grow in grace, the more shall we flourish in glory. Though every vessel of glory shall be full, yet some vessels hold more. — Thomas Watson
Are we living a life for Christ out of the abundance of God’s grace in our lives? Are we praying to be stretched to overflowing and used of God? Are we willing to be poured out in the process?
2 Timothy 2:1–2
You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.
Part of grace in our lives is pouring the grace we have received outside of us! Why have you been strengthened? To strengthen others. We are designed for community and it seems to be missing in the “ME” – “MINE” or “I WANT” mindset that permeates our world.
Momma always said, “If you want to have a friend then be a friend and don’t be selfish or mean…” It is the away we are, our sin is pride, when we let our message become prideful it will be centered inward and we will hold the Good news of Grace in our hearts and not GO like we have been instructed.
