Text: 2nd Corinthians 12:9 KJV

9 He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

In part seven we discussed about the grace to praise God. Today we want to talk about the measures of grace.

We do no have the same measures of grace or let me say different persons operate at different levels of grace from God for service. Apostle Paul made this clear saying though he was the least among the apostles yet by the grace of God upon him, he (Paul) laboured (worked or served God) more than any of the other apostles as recorded in 1 Corinthians 15:9-10

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

So Paul was saying that grace which meant empowerment/passion/strength made him to achieve greater exploits than others because he was bestowed with greater measures of grace. And truly a brief look at the life and ministry of Paul clearly confirmed his words that he laboured more, suffered more for Christ and achieved more for God than others by grace. For examples

* Paul wrote many books of the Bible with great revelations than other apostles e.g Romans, 1st & 2nd Corinthians, Galatians, 1st & 2nd Timothy, Colossians e.t.c
* He went to prison on several occasions in the course of his missionary work that he called himself an apostle and a prisoner of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:1)
* He wrote many letters as a follow up and encouragement to his converts in the different nation’s where he had been to for mission works e.g Letter to the Romans, the Corinthians, the Ephesians, the Phillipians, the Galatians and to his son in the Lord, Timothy.
* He suffered ship wreck and was bitten by a snake in the course of his mission work yet he was ready to die for the course of the gospel (Acts 27-27, 21:11).

Beloved we do not all operate at the same measures of grace and that’s why you will find out that some can go to any length using all they are and have to serve God while some cannot. That is why the scriptures admonishes that we grow in grace meaning the more we grow in grace, the greater the measures of grace and the greater the exploits of our services to God. As you go today in God’s service ask God to release more grace upon your life. God bless you.

* Father, I receive greater measures of grace to serve you in Jesus Name.
* Father help me to grow in grace in Jesus Name.

Nahum 3, Acts 1.
