Let God’s grace work in the lives of others as He has once worked in your life.
Once, we were without understanding in many areas of life, including the spiritual aspects of life.
There was a time when we didn’t see things as we do now. Growth will do that for you. Over time, seeds of change are planted in your life and with the proper soil conditions, they grow and flourish, teaching you, revealing to you, and molding you and me into a better you and me.
How quickly are we to point the finger, verbally or silently, at those who are still struggling to understand? The place of judging others does not belong to us (Romans 14:4; James 4:12).
We must have patience with our fellow man and remember where we once were and His grace that brought us to this day. Pray for others as they are still trying to find their footing in this life.
“Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.” Ephesians 2:11-13
Did you catch that first phrase of that last verse? But now…
Remember, we didn’t bring ourselves salvation. Remember, we weren’t always what we are today. Remember, it was Christ’s blood that saved us. His grace did the work that we couldn’t do or didn’t deserve.
Let us show the same grace to others today as God is working on them too.
