As Christians, we’re all gifted and graced by God to excel in life. There’s the general grace of Jesus Christ which we all received for salvation. Also, there’s the specific grace that God gives you on the basis of His calling on your life. The general grace of God is what brought you salvation and protects you in salvation. However, when God calls you, He gives you a responsibility and the grace to fulfil that responsibility.
“Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering….” (Romans 12:6-7)
The expression, “let us wait on our ministering….” doesn’t mean to wait in line until you have the opportunity for ministry; it means to serve. It means to take advantage of the grace God has given you for service in fulfilling your unique calling in Him.The beautiful thing, however, is that each one of us is uniquely graced to excel, and to fulfil the will of God for our lives.
