Good receivers

God provides grace, and not just barely but lavishly. God never acts in a half-hearted way. His grace is available in abundance. "In him we have the redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding" (Ephesians 1:7-8).

Furthermore Hebrews 4:16 states, "Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." We know we can approach the throne of grace with confidence because there is an abundance of grace available. But do we approach or do we struggle through on our own? Do we reach out to God in our daily lives or do we wait for a crisis? Do we immediately acknowledge our need or do we wait until the situation escalates?

"That we may receive " Receiving requires a certain emptiness, a certain vulnerability on our part. These are not comfortable feelings and perhaps explains why our society so values busyness and activity. Receiving places us in a position where we have to be humble and acknowledge that we have a need in our life. It causes us to feel dependant on another, even if the other is God. Nevertheless we can trust in the character of God and know he won't be embarrassed by our neediness or inadequacies. We don't have to impress God with our self sufficiency. Rather we trust God because we know he is good and has our best interests in mind.

We are not always good receivers and are often better at receiving when it concerns the big issues in our lives. Things we know we can't handle on our own. But God is also interested in teaching us to be good receivers in the daily events of life.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
