A Steward of God’s Grace

August 25, 2020 Chizuruoke Anderson

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace. —1 Peter 4:10

Asteward is someone appointed to super- vise the provision and distribution of food and drink in an institution. Nourishment goes through a steward’s hands to the people who need it.

As stewards of God’s grace, the Lord has given us charge of distributing it to others. We’ve been appointed to look carefully over how His grace is being doled out. And because our King is lavish and His storehouse will never run out (Eph. 1:7–8), we don’t get to be stingy or closed fisted with His grace. We need to pour it out.

Who in your life needs grace right now? Is it your husband? A child? A friend? Maybe it’s a perfect stranger. When we fuel up on the over- extravagant grace God has for us, we should lavish it on the people around us whether they need grace for sin, circumstances, or whatever. And then they, by the grace of God, can in turn generously distribute His grace to those around them.

Make it Personal

Ask God to show you who in your life needs His grace today and use you to lavish it upon them.
