SHM WEEKLY WISDOM TITBIT. WEEK 11. GRATITUDE & GRACE

SHM_HELPING HAND, 01

 

The CHRISTIAN race starts and ends with grace – Charis. Something you have not worked for is grace. For example, nobody has the capacity to pay for sin. Salvation comes in, because we are saved. And everything we can ever gain from salvation is by grace! Therefore, no man can fulfil potential without God’s help.

But we take this grace for granted at times. How? The fact that it is grace does not mean we should just keep receiving ad infinitum. We must give back. For me, gratitude is the proper response to grace. Great men who keep increasing understand, and have mastered this principle – “Receive and Give”.

Jesus Christ already paid mankind upfront at Calvary, so we all owe God our service, in one form or the other! I encourage you this week, do not stay only at the receiving end; find a way to give back by diligent service! That is how to show gratitude, and be positioned to receive more grace. Serve others, help others, love all. Simple, right?

Not at all. We live in a world of personalised pronouns, “me”. “I”, “mine” etc. We tend not to see beyond our immediate comfort zones. But, trust me, there are others far beyond your immediate vision range who are hurting, who are hungry, who are oppressed. We all owe it as a debt of gratitude for our own grace, to reach out, to comfort, to help – in all ways that we can.

Can you do that for He who loved us before we could even love Him? Thank you! Reach out today, show someone the love of Christ Jesus! It may just be a smile that you sow in another’s life that will make a difference, it may be a word of comfort, it may be a lending ear to a troubled soul. And it would make the world of difference.

You shall excel In Jesus’ mighty name. We love you!
