“Therefore, whatever I do in life I will do for his glory and in the name of Jesus with confidence in the skills and opportunity he gives. It is not I, but the grace of God that is with me, doing it.”
1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God, I am what I am, and his grace towards me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me.
Grace is God’s doing. By his grace, God did it when he sent his only Son, Jesus Christ to become a sin offering for us when he was crucified at Calvary. By his grace God demonstrated his loving mercy toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. The consequence of sin is death, and we have all sinned and come short of God’s goodness. Jesus died. Yet, he was not guilty of sin. Therefore, death had no hold on him and three days after he was killed, Jesus came alive again. If we believe in his death and resurrection and confess his lordship over our lives, we can be forgiven of all sin and be reconciled to the goodness of God.
Not only did God do it for me when he sent Jesus to pay for sin and reconcile me to his goodness but, by the grace of God, I am what I am today. As a follower of Christ submitted to God’s will, nothing I do is of my own doing. All I set my hand to do is his doing in and through me. As I continue to acknowledge the Lord in all my ways, he directs my life’s track by his grace. All my skills are God-abilities and all my opportunities are God-opportunities. So, I no longer have confidence in my self but I have confidence in God’s grace.
Therefore, whatever I do in life I will do for his glory and in the name of Jesus with confidence in the abilities and opportunities he gives. It is not I, but the grace of God that is with me, doing it. Grace is God’s doing.
God-tracking is confidently doing it by grace.
