Grace upon grace

“As each of you has received a gift(gracious, divine endowment, Spirit-empowered service in the church), employ it for one another as [befits] good trustees of God’s many-sided grace [faithful stewards of the extremely diverse powers and gifts granted to Christians by unmerited favor].”
1 Peter 4:10

The original Greek text here uses the expression ‘graces'(grace endowments) instead of gifts. All of them are the very fruit of grace itself, like branches of it, and through them the Holy Spirit imparts faith, reveals Christ.

Many Christians live in deception thinking that need to become more mature so they can begin living in grace before they are able to share it with others; not realizing that actually they’ve became stingy. We ought to use this grace-rely on it about everything, because it was freely given and it is irrevocable!

It is written in the Scripture that we need to live our lives in a way that even we speak, our words should give grace to our listeners.

We need to be generous with this given grace in everything we say or do. It cannot be spent. On contrary! The moment we begin to stir it, use it, this grace will flow as a river, it will be released in great measures. God rejoices greatly when He sees one starting to live like this. He takes great pleasure in the joyful, generous giver.

Jesus came full of grace and truth, He gave us grace upon grace. When we generously give, we are left with grace-God made sure it won’t run out!
