Gratitude goes a long way. The Messiah is the one who makes us adequate to do anything. It isn’t about us. I am so very grateful for what Jesus is doing for me. His kindness is overwhelming.
I am nothing and Jesus is everything. Jesus is the one who trusts us to get his work done. Jesus goes “out on a limb” for us and not the other way around.
Before Jesus, we are arrogant and think everything in our life is a result of what we’ve done. Everything in our life is a result of what Jesus has done.
Despite our arrogance, Jesus ignores that and treats us with love, kindness and mercy. It is all about the love of God and his son Jesus.
I’m so grateful to the Messiah Jesus for making me adequate to do this work. He went out on a limb, you know, in trusting me with this ministry. The only credentials I brought to it were invective and witch hunts and arrogance. But I was treated mercifully because I didn’t know what I was doing—didn’t know Who I was doing it against! Grace mixed with faith and love poured over me and into me. And all because of Jesus.
