I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 1:4
God has given us such amazing grace, hasn’t He? He gives us His grace when we accept Jesus into our hearts and that same grace extends out from us to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
But you know what? It can and should also extend to those who have not come to know Jesus yet. What examples we can be to show a loving attitude, full of God’s grace, accepting them right where they are (because we were once lost) and pointing them to the Son of God.
As believers we are filled with the Spirit of God . . . but before we knew Jesus, we didn’t come close to understanding the meaning of His words. But once we accepted Christ, our hearts and minds were opened to understand.
Take the understanding available to you and read the Bible . . . the Holy Spirit’s grace will show you the truths hidden in it.
