Grace to Give

Below is the daily Bible reading I am doing for the West Side Church. Please feel free to follow along.

Paul says something powerful in his writing in today’s passage (Ephesians 3). Paul says that it is “by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power”“This grace was given me: to preach to the gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ, and to make plainly to everyone the administration of this mystery.” Basically Paul was saying, I have been given grace so that I can preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, so that the love of Christ will not be held up, but be made plain to everyone.

Do you ever look at the grace you have been given in the same light? Do you see your salivation, your freedom in Christ, your removal of sin, your promise of eternal life in the prescience of God as a gift of grace you must share? I believe that is an attitude we are supposed to have. God did send Christ to save just one man he sent Christ to save all mankind. You having that gift of grace should want to share it in fact be compelled to share it. So how do you do at that task?
