Grace

But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

Ephesians 4:7

Every Believer

As a believer in Jesus, how much grace do I get? And what about everyone else?

It says "each one." That's every believer. Each. That means me.

I get grace. I don't deserve it. That's part of what grace is: it's an undeserved blessing.

And He uses it to turn me, like a potter turns a lump of clay, into His workmanship.

And my friends who are believers get it too. We each are getting this grace all at the same time.

Plus every other believer on the planet. Of course, He has targeted non-believers with His grace too, they just don't know it yet.

He Does Not Get Spread Thin

If He's spreading all that grace around, He must be getting spread thin (like me when I take on too much), right? No. He doesn't get spread too thin.

This grace gets spread around to each according to the measure of Christ's gift. I'm not going to lie. I don't always notice it. In fact, I've been guilty of thinking that I got passed over in the grace department. But I was wrong, wrong, wrong. It says in this tiny verse that He doesn't pass any of His children over. He gives to EACH.

It's given according to the measure of Christ's gift. He has infinitely more even when we think He's given it all.

He can turn this grace full on and leave it running! I need it!

Lord, I need your grace. I want your grace so I may live a life that is powerful. That is pleasing to you, humble, and effective. I want to be all-in. Today. Show me how. Blessed be the Name of the Lord.
