(Each One Has Been Given Grace To Excel)
TO THE BIBLE – Ephesians 4:7
“But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.”
How wonderful this is! Each one of us has been given grace, according to the measure of the gift of Christ. We’ve all been given grace to excel in life. The Greek word for grace is “Charis,” which is the root of the English word “charisma.” “Charis” refers to the divine influence on the human spirit that reflects on the outside, producing favour, beauty, goodwill, loveliness, and ability. It’s the glory of God in your spirit that reflects on the outside.
This grace causes favour and glory to abound in your life. For example, when the Lord Jesus was a child, the Bible says he “…grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him” (Luke 2:40). Grace made Him, even as a child, to have favour with God and man (Luke 2:52). In the Book of Acts, Barnabas went to visit certain brethren, and the Bible says, “When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all…” (Acts 11:23). What was it that Barnabas saw? It certainly wasn’t a halo over their heads. He saw the beauty of God; he saw things working out excellently in the lives of these brethren.
The grace of God on your life is the divine ability in you to be successful in every endeavour, and you’re to grow in that grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18). Grace is the power of promotion; it’s the element that causes your life to move from one level to another, and that’s why the Scriptures admonish that you grow in it. Every child of God has been given grace in abundance (Romans 5:17), but the degree to which it reflects in your life is up to you. The more you fill your heart with God’s Word and have the Holy Spirit work in your life, the greater the grace of God that’ll be manifested in your life.
2 Peter 1:2; John 1:16
I’m growing in grace and in the knowledge of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The beauty of God in my spirit is showing forth on the outside, evidently manifest for all to see! Excellence, glory, virtue and success are the hallmarks of my life, because the grace of God is superabundant upon me.
