Everyone of us has been GIVEN grace ... it cannot be earned for any measure someone might be willing to meet out for it... Rather it is given at the highest rate of exchange possible... “according to the measure of the gift of Jesus!” Oh how priceless is the free gift of grace ...
What jumps out at me is that everyone has been given a gift to share. It is the same God working through the whole body. I think it is easy to assume someone is closer to God because they are a teacher or evangelist, but it’s the same God providing all the gifts. We have the same spirit and I must be content with the call on my life, knowing that it is God working in me and these gifts are not measures of spirituality
Amen Justin - thank you!
