Desire favor over reward!

2nd February 2021
Grace for you today
Growing in Grace unto Excellence !

“Then she said, “Let me find favor in your sight, my lord; for you have comforted me, and have spoken kindly to your maidservant, though I am not like one of your maidservants.””
‭‭Ruth‬ ‭2:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Here is Ruth who was greatly appreciated by Boaz for her good works . Her amazing conduct of life was as a result of Grace out working . She knew the power of Grace . But when it came to receive the due reward for her good works , she insisted for more grace in her life .

This is truly amazing . Most of us look forward for the due reward for the hard work that we have put in . Doubtlessly , the hard work itself was as a result of Grace outworking in the first place. Also , there is nothing wrong looking forward for the due reward.

However, when the due reward doesn’t result in the estimated time set by us especially when we compare with others lives, disappointment sets in our heart and we begin to slowly drift away from God’s righteousness into self righteousness. We cease growing in grace.
My beloved, let’s focus like Ruth was focussed. She put grace ahead of reward. She was very keen on growing in grace. The final analysis of her life resulted in God’s blessing beyond her expectation.
So shall it be with you today . Amen 🙏
Grow in grace through your confession that you are the righteousness of God on account of Christ’s righteous acts.

Praise Jesus !
