Revelations, Thorns, and the Grace of God Every child of God experiences his or her own version of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. Every one of our lives is a mixture of good days, bad days, blessings, and bummers. But as followers of The Lord Jesus Christ, we can count on one thing to sustain us in and through all of those seasons - His wonderful, marvelous, and powerful grace. It was the grace of God that granted Paul visions and revelations that were so spectacular that he could not even write them down. But it was also the grace of God that sustained him and strengthened him when he was buffeted by a painful and demonic “thorn in the flesh”. How vital it is for each of us to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as the apostle Peter exhorts (2 Peter 3:18). It is not enough to know the academic doctrine of grace. It is not enough to be able to articulate the theological implications of the doctrine of grace. Grace is a Person and His Name is Jesus Christ. When we go to the throne of grace for help or wisdom in time of need (Hebrews 4:16), God gives us Himself as the supply of grace and help. Jesus doesn’t give us grace and a lecture. He gives us Himself, and in giving us Himself, He gives us abundant grace (John 1:17). So whether you are experiencing revelations from God or thorny attacks from the enemy, know this. God’s grace is sufficient for you and His strength is made perfect in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).

A Real Basket Case Have you ever heard the saying, he or she is a real “basket case”? In our study this morning, the apostle Paul ends his credentials of being a genuine follower of Jesus Christ by referring to the time when he was let down the side of a wall in a basket to escape the wrath of those who wanted to do him in. From the very outset of his ministry to the end, there was never any letup to the afflictions and opposition he faced in his ministry of preaching the gospel and making disciples. You and I may not be called by God to face the same degree of challenges and opposition that Paul did, but we are all called to deny ourselves daily, pick up our crosses and follow Him. We are all called to endure difficulties and forgo conveniences for the cause of Christ and to care for one another. The vast majority of Christendom today is far removed from the biblical example of sacrifice and care that was exhibited by the early followers of Jesus. If there is one word that is sorely lacking in today's church, it is the word sacrifice. It is both a noun and a verb. It describes the action of being a living sacrifice, of giving up oneself, for the cause of Christ and for the sake of others. All of Paul’s “credentials” were incidental things that he faced in the pursuit of the spreading the gospel and the daily care of all the churches. Because Paul knew the sacrificial love of Christ for him, he sacrificially cared for Christ’s bride, the Church. What are your sacrificial credentials of being a follower of Jesus Christ? Selah

Messengers of Satan - Angels of Light Ever since the fall of man, the world has been spiritually divided into two groups: those who are “begotten” of the spiritual seed of Cain, and those who are “begotten” of the spiritual seed of Abel. Dear ones, the devil has ministers. They use the same language that you and I do as Christians, but underneath the mask of words is a different gospel and different Jesus. Do not be deceived, beloved. They are ministers of darkness in sheep’s clothing.

From the Garden of Eden to the present hour, the biblical truth of God regarding Jesus Christ and the gospel has been redefined, twisted, or simply called outrageous. Satan has his own "evangelists" who proclaim a counterfeit Jesus and a counterfeit gospel under the inspiration of a demonic spirit who transforms himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14).

Our study today presents us with the most important aspect of the Christian life; namely, living for the glory of God. Unfortunately, to speak of the glory of God has become a phrase that is used so much that it has become trite and void of any depth of meaning. To live for the glory of God simply means that I no longer live for myself. That is it in a nutshell. This living for the glory of God affects how we eat, drink, work, pray and serve. Living for the glory of God is living under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Ponder this thought beloved. Any problem that you and I have in our walk with Jesus; be it in our marriage, our vocation or even in how we relate to on another here at Koinonia is a Lordship problem.

Spiritual warfare is part of the normal Christian life. Because we live in a fallen world and still dwell in a body that is corrupted by the influence of sin, the battle for what we think is the key to living a life of victory as a Christian. And where does the battle begin? It begins in the mind.

Are you using God’s Spirit to help you make wise decisions? It’s up to you whether you take advantage of the gifts that God offers. In my life, they are exactly what I need each and every day. We must choose to live generously. When you are generous, you experience being "enriched in every way". If you live generously, someone else will get an opportunity to learn of and receive God’s generosity.

Sowing and reaping is one of the principles of life in the kingdom of God. But this sowing and reaping is to be done with a willing heart and with cheerful attitude. Sowing and reaping is a heart response to the grace of God that has been lavished upon us through Jesus Christ. It is an act of worship. We have the freedom to make choices, but we must remember that the choices we make have consequences. If we sow to the flesh, we reap corruption; if we sow to The Spirit, we reap life.

In these verses Paul is giving us a wonderful example of what it means to walk in integrity and accountability. He knew that not only were others keeping track of him, but most importantly, so was Our Lord Jesus.

What is the difference between generosity and giving? Jesus became poor so that we might become rich. Let's remember that when we decide how much we should give back for the cause of His kingdom.
