Abound in this grace also!

"Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also" 2 Corinthians 8:7 KJV.

Abound in this grace also, Giving!

God gave us his only Son, the Son gave us his life; "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich" 2 Corinthians 8:9.

God’s grace was bestowed on us, that while in our deep poverty we should be able to give to others also, why? Because our sufficiency is of God.

Grace does not operate in a vacuum,
your first action is to dedicate yourself to the Lord then abound in every thing; in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, in all diligence, in love for the brethren, and then in the spirit of cheerful giving.

Grace be with you, meaning;

  • prove the sincerity of your love, 2 Corinthians 8:8.
  • prove that your deeds are as good as your doctrine
  • not only to do, but also to be forward, 2 Corinthians 8:10. Forward on giving, and on your own accord give, be ready to minister to the needs of other believers.
"Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also out of that which ye have" 2 Corinthians 8:11.

It is profitable for you, not only to do something but to want to do it cheerfully and energetically, and to want to finish it. "For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God; Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection unto the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution unto them, and unto all men; And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you. Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift" 2 Corinthians 9:12-15.

Show your love;

"Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give ; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work" 2 Corinthians 9:7-8.

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

When I am weak, then I am strong!

What is it in which you are inferior to other people, to other believers, other churches, etc? Is it your lack, need, illness, or weakness? Paul says, "for in nothing was I behind the most eminent apostles, though I am nothing," "…most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me," 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, " and be found of such as you do not wish; with "contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, backbitings, whisperings, conceits, tumults," 2 Corinthians 12:20. “… I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong," 2 Corinthians 12:10.  He says I take pleasure in infirmities, "lest, … my God will humble me among you, and I shall mourn for many who have sinned before and have not repented of the unclean

The Word of life!

The word of life is eternal life preached, manifested, or exhibited to you. The choice is yours my friend, to want to look upon, touch, hear, declare or bear witness of the same, but “whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him," 1 John 2:5. The message of the word of life is, eternal life, that God is light, and that we have fellowship with Him if we walk just as He walked. And now because you have the light of God, "darkness is passing away, and the true light is already shining," 1 John 2:8. There is no cause for stumbling in you. The apostle says, “I have written to you, … Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one," 1 John 2:14.  It is the word of truth, an anointing,  "the same teaches you concerning all things," 1 John 2:27. Let this truth abide in you, and you abide in Him. He who does the will of God abides forever! "We have an Advoc
