October 2

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.” 1 Corinthians 15:10a (NIV)

This is part of the testimony of the apostle Paul. In writing these words he was reminding his readers of the great change that came into his life when he realized how much God had done for him. God changed him from an enemy of Jesus Christ to a close friend. And after that God used him to get the message out to many people in many places. What Paul said is that it was God who did all this by His grace. He didn’t deserve it. Neither do we deserve the blessings and good things God does for us. We need to recognize that God is working in each of us and we need to give Him the credit for it, so we can say with Paul, “By the grace of God I am what I am.”
