Reflection : 1 Peter 4:8-11


We who have received the Grace of God; Now What?

"And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”

Grace is the love and mercy given to us by God because God desires us to have it, not because of anything we have done to earn it.

Having been recipients of God’ Amazing Grace we are also called to be instruments in dispensing the Grace of God to others that His Glory be made known . May this passage in 1 Peter 4:8-11 guide us.
