Grace for you today !
Christ in me – Greater Glory
“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward 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.”
I Corinthians 15:10 NKJV
‘Sense of Entitlement’ – Is it a boon or a bane ?
Exercising your rightful claim is much needed if it is done the Right way.
Both the Apostle Paul and the older son in the parable of the “Prodigal Son” laboured exceedingly. Also, both of them in their pursuit applied a comparative analysis but Apostle Paul did it the Right way, the way that God sees as right, which is the way of Righteousness.
What then is the Right Way ?
Apostle Paul knew that it was only the grace of God that enabled him to progress beyond his contemporaries. He never forgot his humble beginning. His focus was Jesus alone . He kept allowing the Holy Spirit to replicate Christ in him. He was very assertive when it came to the application of Grace in his life.
When he had given himself totally to the working of grace , he realised with the passing of time that he had gone past his contemporaries, was way beyond the world standards, was truly in the making of the Divine in the human. This is amazingly amazing & truly outstanding as he stood out from the rest in the very nature of Christ , full of compassion especially to the lost ! That’s the Right Way!
May the Lord God grant us this sense of entitlement to pursue our call that God has called us to, so that at the end there will be a standing ovation from the spectators of heaven when Jesus hugs us saying, “ Well done my good and faithful servant …“
(Mathew 25:21). Hallelujah!
