Vital Signs - Friday, January 3, 2020


What is it that makes Paul “Paul” and not “Saul”? It’s the grace of God. Saul, a man of learning, privilege, and power, bent his knee in awe at the foot of the cross. When he did that, he became Paul – a completely new person transformed by grace.


The only response to the grace of God is to choose to become its servant. Paul’s first words in his epistle to the Romans are “Paul, a servant of the gospel”; literally: “a slave of the gospel.”


Grace brings us all down to the same level because at the foot of the cross, there’s no economy class, and no first class; there’s only kneeling class.


How do you weigh your successes and your failures? You think that when you succeed that you are more approved of by God? When you fail do you think that God withholds His grace from you? We know that where sin abounds, God’s grace abounds all the more (Galatians 5:20). You and I must be like Paul, to be able to say, “By the grace of God I am what I am.”
