5 Minutes from the Heart: Enough

Linking in with the Gypsy Mama, Lisa-Jo this morning at www.thegypsymama.com for just five minutes straight from my heart.

Running a little late this morning. Fighting a nasty head cold all week, but thankful that God has supplied all of my needs according to His riches!!

11:03 Start

Funny that this would be the topic today because I have been really struck this week by articles pertaining to how God’s GRACE is ENOUGH for us.

In 2 Corinthians 12:9, Christ tells us ” my GRACE is ENOUGH for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”

I was really struck by the thought that we know we are weak and accept the GRACE of God to cover our sins, yet we do not provide the same courtesy to our friends, acquaintances, and family members. We expect them to be ENOUGH without giving them the benefit of the doubt, or an ounce of GRACE.

Christ models GRACE and sufficiency for us. He shows us how we should treat others, and yet we fail time and time again to model that same grace for others.

I ask today that you take a moment to think about your own inefficiencies and how Christ has cover them with His GRACE.

Can you extend the same to someone in your life who you have been holding to a higher standard than you hold yourself?

11:08 Stop

  1. A gorgeous message. If only we could easily give the grace he gives to us, I think believing in the sufficiency of his grace would be much easier. Thank you for the timely encouragement.
