"And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Corinthians 9:8
When I pray for my family and when I pray for others, I often pray that we not only be blessed by God but that we will also be a blessing to others for God. God is so good to us! God's grace is amazing. God's grace is transforming. I am thankful for God's grace upon my life, but I am thankful for God's grace through my life, as well. I am so thankful that I am not just a container of His grace; I am a vessel of His grace; I am a funnel of His grace. Paul told the church in Corinth that God was able to bless them abundantly in all things and at all times. Paul told the church that they could "abound in every good work" because of the grace God poured out upon them. That word "abound" means "to exist in great quantities." It means "to be rich or well supplied." As Christ followers today, God's grace is available to us. It is abundant. God's grace is not to be hoarded for selfish gain; it is to be shared with others for God's glory. Let's be vessels of God's abundant grace today. Let's be funnels of His grace today, abounding in every good work! Believe it! Claim it! Live it!
