“But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.”
Ephesians 4:7 (New International Version)
We’ve just ended another gift giving season. Some gifts were well received and brought great excitement and pleasure while others sat ready waiting for retailers to open so they could be returned for something more desirable. God gives us gifts and one of His gifts He’s given is His gift of grace.
Paul speaks of this gift in his letter to the church in Ephesus. In Ephesians 4 he conveys “…to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it”. God’s gifts are given according to His divine will for the building up of the body, the church, and His church. Putting the focus on the gift and the purpose and utilization of the gift demonstrates appreciation of the gift giver.
When God gives you a gift He gives it with full understanding of how much you can handle and apportions it according to your faith. No one gift is great than another for they are all used to build the body of Christ.
God has given us grace so gladly receive it and walk in the privilege He has given you.
“Grace is the free, undeserved goodness and favor of God to mankind.”Matthew Henry
