Sometimes we get stuck spiritually in caves of comfort. Maybe they’re not comfortable, but we have grown accustomed to not risking our comfort zones with grandiose faith gestures.
But that’s the thing about our faith. We are called to move out of our comfort zones with the Light of God’s love to lead us and the grace of God to help us.
“God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always, having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8)
My papa broke down this verse this way:
“God is able to make all grace (not just a little bit of grace), abound (not just trickle), toward you (not just Billy Graham, your pastor and missionaries, but toward you), that you (Paul repeats you for emphasis), always (not just sometimes), having all sufficiency (not just some sufficiency), in all things (not just some things), may abound (not just limp along), unto every good work (not just some good works.)”
Abounding grace, always, all sufficiency, all things, every good work – that should push us out of our comfort zones to do more for God!
grace, peace & abounding grace
