Grace At Work

     “For through the grace given to me, I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think: but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith” (Romans 12:3).
     Grace can do a wonderful work in our lives.  It will save us from sin; it will keep us from the power of sin; it will equip us for every good work as a Christian.  It also should humble us under the mighty hand of God.  Here’s where we need to be careful.  When His grace is working in us we won’t be exalting ourselves; we will give Him the glory.  We will allow God to equip us and lead us into our working place.  This is the pattern Jesus left for us.  When we boast and “blow smoke”, it hides our gifts.  Let’s empty ourselves as Jesus did.  Let’s keep ourselves as meek, and God will supply our power.
