00161 - Agents of spectacular grace
Updated: Mar 10
Someone once said grace gives us what we don’t deserve and mercy protects us from what we do deserve, whichever way you look at it, God is benevolent.
2 Corinthians 9:8 expands on this thought, ‘And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.’ (NKJV)
In as much as we are the recipients of grace, we can also be agents of grace too. Imagine showing the people you meet each day the kind of grace that God regularly shows you? Becoming an expert of extending grace is probably one of the kindest things you could do. You would demonstrate the opposite spirit in a negative situation, would show those around love during difficult times and ultimately example the Kingdom of God when for many your grace would be their first encounter.
Every act of grace extended to someone is spectacular.
Father let me extend grace to others in the same way you extend it to me, Amen.
Try extending grace to someone a few times today, they will feel good, so will you, and the Kingdom of God will be revealed.
