For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
2 Corinthians 12:9
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
Has God ever given you a revelation that kind of just stopped you in your tracks and made you ask for forgiveness for your foolishness. Today, as I worshipped I had a reminder of one. When I started my walk of faith I remember I would get so upset when I’d be praying or in worship and someone would interrupt me (since then I’ve done a lot of maturing in Christ 😉). I had this look on my face and attitude that totally didn’t reflect what I was doing. One day, the Holy Spirit revealed to me how quick I was able to step out of grace and into unholy feelings, and that instead of putting that out there and acting like I was the only one holy enough to pray or worship, I should invite them to join me. There was rejection I’m doing so, and then one day there wasn’t from one person and really if only one, that’s enough for heaven to celebrate. Today, I encourage you that If there’s ever an interruption in the middle of your prayer, worship or bible reading you have extend that gift to that person, because it might just be a heavenly interruption, it might just be that that person was suppose to walk in on something that could absolutely change their lives.
Lord, please forgive me for my foolishness, forgive me when I think that I am right when I am wrong. Forgive .e because sometimes I interfere with your heavenly set ups. Lord I humble .myself before you and as you have shown me grace through out my life, I ask that you show me how to show that grave towards others. In Jesus name Amen.
