God's Grace is sufficient

God’s Grace is Sufficient

My grace is sufficient” (II Corinthians 12:9). I often make the statement, “It seems that Christians are saved by grace but serve by guilt.” Some say, “I go to church because I feel guilty when I don’t.” Your motivation for service should be the grace not guilt. Paul continued to serve because God’s grace was sufficient. No matter what may abound in your life God’s grace will always “abound more” in times of need. Whether it be sin, suffering or sacrifices His grace will abound “more” and it will always be “sufficient. “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound” (Romans 5:20). The word “sufficient” is misunderstood in today’s language. For example you could say, “He is a “sufficient” husband which could mean that he is average or acceptable. The word “sufficient” in this verse simply means that God’s grace is always “enuff” to meet every spiritual need you face in your life. His grace will always excel and exceed your present need. As a woman looked at the ocean for the first time she said, “Thank God for something where there is enuff.” Enuff is a good southern word that means it is enough. All of mankind can breathe fresh air, but it will not exhaust the supply of oxygen. The more you receive even more remains. God’s unmerited, unearned, unexhaustible, and undeserved grace will always be “enuff.” ” It does not matter how much grace is needed it will always be sufficient or “enuff” for the occasion. His grace remains unchanged and unlimited. His grace never diminishes or decreases. Whatever the level of persecution you may face in life. His grace will always be “there” because it is sufficient. As Paul when you face the trials of this life you can also say, “His grace is sufficient.” At this time you may not need grace, but there will be times of trials where you also will learn that God’s grace is sufficient. I recently learned that there is no substitute for the grace, presence and peace of God. May you also learn that His grace will always be enuff. These are Words of Wisdom.
