DAILY MEDITATION

March 17, 2019

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

I Peter 5:5-7

 

As an identifying factor of those who believe and are Living Under Grace, they love ye one another.  Loving ye one another is different and in direct opposition to loving the other.  The other implies someone different as to be strange, another implies someone different but yet another version of you.  God created us all, different, yes yet connected by the Spirit of God within us that makes us living souls.  God goes further by offering His Son as a sacrifice, a bridge to reconcile us, the whosoever, whoever they are and/or what they bring to the table, to Him, His purpose and plan.  Living Under Grace demands that we love one another, even as God has loved us for who we are and what we bring to the table, and by this will they know that you are my disciples.  The grace of God for which He so freely gives, He gives to His disciples that they would have favor to witness, represent Him in the world, despite our shortcomings and/or inadequacies, no matter who we are.  The flow of grace in and over our lives demands that we serve one another; no matter where we are, what we have or our race, social, and/or economic position, we freely take the stance as servants of God to one another, offering to everyone what God offers us.  In offering God, we submit ourselves to His leading and guiding, humbling ourselves not only to one another but also to God and HIs purpose and plan for our lives, His desired witness.  Our submitting to God’s leading does not come easy but raises levels of cares and anxieties, a frustrating and bewildering path He takes us on serving as His witness we encounter and/or challenged to our core yet as we are Living Under Grace, He gives us the right to surrender, cast it all upon Him.  God cares for us and welcomes our questions, frustrations, anxieties, uncertainties, all of it so that He may through us work it all out for our good to LIVE!
