Application of the Fighter Verse for September 17/18

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

2 Corinthians 9:8

Look at the superlative words in this verse:

All – Abound – All – All – All – Abound – Every

If I had been in the Corinthian Church reading this letter, I fear I would have thought, “Really, Paul?”

Let’s read that again:

All grace
Abounding grace
All sufficiency
All things
All times
Abounding good work, and not only that but
Every good work.

God can’t really do that for me, to me, and through me, can he?

But . . .  there it is in black and white. God can do it. God will do it.

He can take your work and what you give and make it abound.

And we know what we have to do from last week – we need to ‘sew bountifully’, which we see in the next few verses means giving to the church, giving to the poor, and supplying for the needs of the saints .

We need to attempt things for God and keep attempting things. And God will make it abound.

So . . .

Do you believe this?

Do you act like you believe this?

What action can you do right now to ‘sew’ so you may later ‘reap’?
