“But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.” Ephesians 4:7 (NKJV) There is no greater gift than the grace of God. The measure of His gift is beyond anything we could ever ask or imagine. Christ’s gift of becoming sin, taking our sickness, poverty and pain of every kind, dying with it, and resurrecting in complete, unhindered freedom is more magnificent than our minds are able to comprehend. What a beautiful, utterly complete, and selfless gift. And we have been given grace in accordance to the measure and magnitude of that gift!
This means that for any given circumstance on any given day of our lives there is a bountiful portion of grace to overcome. Regardless of the difficulty, pressure, or pain, His grace has already been given in direct proportion to what Christ gave. His gift is an eternal gift. It never runs out, it never leaves, and it never changes. His gift is all sufficient. Therefore, the measure of grace given us is all sufficient and we can draw on it every day of our lives with every breath we take.
What a wonderful truth to realize! There will always be more grace than our lives will need to draw on because the gift Christ gave was an eternal river of abundant life. He invites us to drink from it unhindered, to swim in it freely, and abide by it daily. No, this grace can never be measured or contained. His grace is enough to soothe any pain, mend any tear, and bridge any gap. Rest and rely on the immeasurable, impenetrable grace you have been freely given today!
