I am writing a bible study that I’ve entitled “Life in the Key of G ~ Grace & Glory.” I’ll be using this study as I lead the ministry time at a women’s retreat in May.
I would so appreciate if you took the time to answer the question in the “Ponder” section. With your permission, I would like to use your response in my Bible study, by attributing it either by your first name only or anonymously.
Thanks so much!
Precept: Not only are we saved by God’s grace but we also live by His grace.
Passage: The Apostle Paul pleaded three times that the thorn in his flesh might depart, God’s response, however, was, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:8-9)
Premise: Perhaps the greatest challenge we face is our willing submission. To submit is to surrender. We surrender the cost to our flesh. We surrender the discomfort to our ego. We surrender our personal agenda to minister as unto the Lord to the needs of others.
Ponder: Can you think of a specific area in which you need to surrender to God’s grace working in your life?
