Keep Passing It On

Thought for the Week

We were created to be conduits of grace. God doesn’t just rain down grace from the heavens, he distributes it to others through us. Why? Because he wants us to be like him. And if his grace doesn’t flow through us, we never will.

“Let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” ~Matthew 5:16

  2. Well said, Mitch. We should channels for the river of God. That sounds a little “New Age,” but it’s true. Blessings.

    I think God permits things to be harder in certain cases because he wants us to cooperate with him in bringing his grace to difficult situations.

    I keep thinking about this one. I think intercessory prayer works like this. Is seems to me that maybe God’s design is to act in the world through our prayers; to nudge us to speak on his behalf and to inhabit our words to bring healing and wholeness into this world. Maybe God delights to have us participate in His work, being conduits of his grace.
