Stewards of God’s Grace

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. ... Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. [1Peter 4:10-11 ESV]

I think that we sometimes forget that God's grace ordinarily comes through human beings who have been transformed by the Holy Spirit. In that sense, we are stewards or agents of divine grace. Each day we are presented opportunities to sacrificially serve each other with our spiritual gifts.

To that end, as stewards of grace, we are called to love and serve with everything that is within us. Called to use any and every gift that we have been given. Helping gifts. Healing gifts. Gifts of time. Gifts of money. Gifts of friendship. All we have is His to use as we serve as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

Thank you Lord for the gifts you have given to us. Help us to be good stewards of them and your grace.

... this devotion is part of an ongoing series on the epistles of Peter.
