Christian Devotional – November 2, 2019

The same grace. Paul had been preaching to the Gentiles and that was new. So how did the church leadership respond? Read Galatians 2:7-10.

But on the contrary, seeing that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been to the circumcised (for He who effectually worked for Peter in his apostleship to the circumcised effectually worked for me also to the Gentiles), and recognizing the grace that had been given to me, James and Cephas and John, who were reputed to be pillars, gave to me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, so that we might go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. They only asked us to remember the poor-the very thing I also was eager to do.
Galatians 2:7‭-‬10 NASB

As the church leaders questioned Paul, they realized that Paul was a recipient of the same grace they were. Plus, he was preaching the same grace. As we are going through our day, do we recognize the grace that God has given us and allowed us to enjoy? Do we recognize that God’s grace extends to all? If we are willing to accept it, God gives us His grace, which we certainly don’t deserve.
