(Grace Has Qualified You)
TO THE BIBLE: 1 Corinthians 1:9
“God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Amanda was bubbling over with so much excitement. It was just a week before her eighteenth birthday, and she could hardly wait for the day to come. All she could think of was, “Wow, in a few days, I’ll become eligible to vote, get a driver’s license, have my own bank account and credit card, go bungee jumping and skydiving with my friends and do lots of other things. Yippee!” Her dad couldn’t help but laugh when she reeled out the list of things she’d do once she turned eighteen.
If her eligibility made Amanda that excited, I’m sure you’ll be even more excited to discover what the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ has made you eligible for. It has qualified you to participate in God’s extraordinary Gospel programme.
Ephesians 1:6 says, “To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved.” It’s something you ought to be eternally grateful for because no one on their own is ever qualified to do anything in the Kingdom of God.
Therefore, be grateful to God for giving you responsibilities in His Kingdom; you’re privileged to be His partner in soul-winning and to be a part of His agenda on the earth. Therefore, put your best into serving Him, and doing whatever He’s called you to do.
Ephesians 1:3-6, Ephesians 2:8
Dear Father, I thank you for counting me faithful and putting me into the ministry. With my heart, I serve you diligently and faithfully, and daily express your love and undying affection to the hurting, bringing them into your fountain of love, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
