But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
1 Corinthians 15:10 (NKJV)
World Changer: Apostle Paul had the revelation early, that he was the least of the apostles and was not even worthy of that calling, because he had been a persecutor of the church of Christ.
But by the grace of God he had turned into a servant of the Most High and the grace he had received had not been in vain because it had worked in him until it made him the servant of God who wrote the most books in the New Testament since thirteen letters are recognized.
All born again Christians must ask God that the humility of Christ (Matthew 11:29), God puts it in us through the Holy Spirit and the power of His grace because we must also understand that no human being in his own strength is going to be able to please God.
In the second letter to the Corinthians, Paul tells that he had known the third heaven and the paradise and there he heard words he could not explain but God put in his heart that he should not glory in anything he had seen, but rather in his weaknesses and not to boast so that no one would think of him more than he really was, a servant of God.
And God made sure that Paul did not exalt himself excessively and put a thorn in him, a messenger of Satan who would slap him so that he would never exalt himself in a way and although he prayed three times, God answered him: *My grace is enough for you because my power it is made perfect in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12: 1-10).
Today is the day to give glory to God and surrender to Him (Romans 10: 8-13).
Christ in us the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27).
