GRACE

1Corinthians 15:10

But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon 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.


As Christians and Believers we sometimes limit the grace of God bestowed upon us not realising what a mighty force it is and a real privilege indeed. Grace is God’s ability given to us and placed upon us. You  and I are saved by grace, which means that there is nothing you and I can do to earn our salvation; it is a gift from God. It is what God has done for us. I have also seen that the disciples prayed that God’s grace would be given to one another often.

The Bible says there is a gift of grace, just like there is a gift of faith, leadership, encouragement and others. When we depend on God totally for His ability( grace) to work through us, then we look to His ability working through us, and we no longer have to consider only our own ability but that God is working through us. That is where the power to overcome difficulties and also to minister to others is found. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. This is also means there is no limit to what we can do or achieve for as long as we depend on His grace and allow Him to be the Captain of our lives.
