GRACE FOR ABUNDANCE Text: 2 Cor.9:8
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work."
The word Grace carries power. Power is the ability or the quality to do something or to get something done. Acts 1:8 says, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” This scripture shows us that there are things that you cannot do except you receive the power to do it.
Abundance talks about having more than enough. Many times when we talk about abundance our mind goes to abundance of money but it is not only limited to money. Abundance talks about: abundance of joy, abundance of peace, abundance of fruitfulness, abundance of favour, abundance of good health and so on. This is why Ephesians:3:20 says, "Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us”.
From the opening text, the bible lets us know that God is able to make all grace abound towards us. The phrase “all grace” here shows us that grace is required to get the abundance.
Brethren, many times we talk about God’s grace. Most of us know what grace talks about but one thing I can assure you of is that grace is an enabler. Grace enables you to do what ordinarily you cannot by yourself do. Grace gives you what ordinarily you are not qualified to take. Grace takes you to a place where ordinarily you are not qualified to be. Outside of grace man will labour.
