Today’s scripture: Romans 12:3
A few days ago, we looked at how grace should make us humble. Today’s verses
share similar theme.
By grace, we are saved.
By grace, we are children of God.
By grace, we are given gifts to serve God and others.
Everything we are, everything we have, everything we can do … these are all
gifts of grace.
So why do we think that we are so
important? That we accumulated all we
have? That we can do what we do?
We are nothing without God. We have nothing without God. We can do nothing without God.
It is only by God’s abundant grace and overwhelming love—both so underserved—that
we experience the amazing blessings we do.
To think “more highly” of ourselves than we should is basically saying that
grace is meaningless.
