“For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am.”
I Corinthians 15:9-10 (NIV)
Paul was called to be an Apostle, but he knew he was unworthy of the calling. He knew that it was because of the grace of God on his life that he was in ministry. But even though he knew that he was unworthy to serve Christ, he also knew that God’s love can overcome any past that Paul had. We need to come to the same realization of what God’s grace has done for us. By God’s grace we are His child. By God’s grace we are born again and forgiven of all our wrong doing. By God’s grace we have hope. By God’s grace we have a personal relationship with God. By His grace we have eternal life. By God’s grace we are alive and living with a purpose. All of us have a story. All of us, in one way or another is totally unworthy of serving Christ, but then it is God’s grace that calls us. Today, believe what Paul did. Serve God knowing, “But by the grace of God, I am what I am.” Thank God for His marvelous grace that He has so freely given us.
Father, thank You for Your grace. Thank You for all the mercy, forgiveness, hope, peace, joy and love that is mine as a result of Your grace that has be lavished upon me. I give You praise and thanks in the matchless name of Jesus.
