“But as you abound in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us— see that you abound in this grace also.” II Corinthians 8:7 NKJV
The grace of God is sufficient for you to abound in all things. Let us consider some areas you are expected to abound in.
Faith: By faith you stand firm (1Cor.1:24). The just shall live by faith. Exceeding growth in faith is a cause for thanksgiving. A growing faith indicates a growing Christian. You can’t please God without faith.
Speech: Your mouth is like the pen of a ready writer. You have to examine your words and ensure that you are speaking life, health, victory, safety, longevity, and every good thing that God has in store for you into your life consistently.
Love: In these last days when the love of many will grow cold, the Holy Spirit will help you to love others as Christ loved you, and show yourself as a true disciple. You have to overcome evil with good (Rom 12:21). Love covers all sins by forgiveness and forbearance.
Father, make me increase and abound in love to other believers, in faith, in diligence and in every good and perfect thing IJN.
