Have you ever stopped to think about what you are really capable of doing? Have you ever stopped to think about what the church is capable of doing?
This passage is awesome…it contains possibility and hope. There is a little catch though…there is a potential stumbling block that we need to be very aware of: “…Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment…”
Read it again…then look at how this particular verse is intended…how the entire passage today, I think is intended…”For by the grace given me I say to every one of you…” By God’s grace…
Each day is a new blessing by the Creator of the universe. There are amazing possibilities…using the gifts God has given to each of us…to be the body of Christ – the Church. The challenge is to use the gifts given to help the body function rather than seeing the self gain that is so easily possible. What are you capable of doing by God’s grace and mercy to build up the body of Christ…the Church? Ponder for a moment the possibilities of the Church by God’s grace and mercy to make this world a better place and to provide hope to those who struggle each day. Today is a new blessing…86,400 seconds granted by the grace of God! Don’t abuse or waste a moment of this day!!
