Grace

As often as possible, which is more achievable than assumed, children of God need to revel in God’s grace. Daily I’m reminded of God’s goodness when meditating on the reality of the gospel of God. One passage that is particularly humbling and encouraging is 1 Corinthians 15:10, “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.”

The Apostle Paul was a great man of God, who did mighty things for the church, and was a loyal slave of Jesus Christ. Yet reading these words he penned reminds us of the humility he had as a faithful minister of the gospel of God. This passage also encourages us toward such faithfulness. As children of God we too must possess this humility as we reckon that God’s grace makes us who we are.

This week as we finish the final week of our sermons series, “What is the Church?” let us with meekness seek to grasp the importance of discipline in the life of a church.

By God’s grace as your caring shepherd,

Pastor Brian
