For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them – yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.
We are different because of grace (the unearned, undeserved friendship and love of God) which changed us. One definition of grace says, “it is the Divine Favor spontaneous and free, designing joy and pleasure for the receiver”. So great a gift we have received…why are we reluctant to share it with others?
There are many people in our lives, and ministries who do not deserve our love and friendship. God has set the example for us. He means for us to follow it.
