Raising a people of purpose


2 Corinthians 6: 1-2
The Word: 2 Corinthians 6: 1-2 (KJV)

We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Think about it

Grace is like a window of opportunity. It has a time limitation attached to it, 
When grace is not used at the right time, it can lead to wastage. Also when grace is not used at the right time someone else can have similar ideas / grace and take the opportunity from us. It is important that we learn to recognise God given opportunity and promptly act on them.

Our text today talks about not receiving the grace of God in vain. When someone is resisting salvation they are frustrating the grace of God. Also when our output is far lower than the resources given to us, then there is a wastage. Today is a call to take a look into our lives: Am I maximising the grace in my life or am I frustrating it 

Prayer focus:  Lord thank you for everything. Help me maximise your grace IJN
