Attitude of Gratitude

Attitude of Gratitude

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.
