II. God offers to Provide us His Grace (v. 6)
A. God’s provision is an abundant supply. “More” (v. 6)
B. God’s provision is to the humble.
1. “Humble people don’t think less of themselves…they just think about themselves less. Norman Vincent Peale
How can we receive God’s grace?
C. God expects us to submit to Him
1. The Greek word translated “submit” here means “to place or arrange under; as resist is to array against.
God wants us to depend on His grace, while the devil wants us to depend on ourselves. Satan enjoys inflating the ego and encouraging us to do things our own way. Choosing to do things God’s way is much more beneficial for us.
The provision of God’s grace offers us positive results.
III. The Product of Grace
A. Purity (2 Cor. 1:12) Paul had a clear conscience and a good testimony as a result of receiving God’s grace.
B. Provision (2 Cor. 9:8) God is willing to grace us with financial sufficiency.
C. Passion (1 Cor. 15:10) Grace provided passion for the Apostle Paul.
D. Power (Acts 4:33; 2 Cor. 12:9) The apostles had power as a result of God’s grace upon them.
Man’s nature leans toward worldliness and pride. God makes His grace available to us. Through God’s grace we can be victorious over sin and Satan.
Allow me to close with a quote from a great pulpiteer of the past, Charles Spurgeon.
“Beloved Christian reader, in matters of grace, you need a daily supply. You have no store of strength. Day by day must you seek help from above. It is a very sweet assurance that a daily portion is provided for you in the word, through the ministry, by meditation, in prayer, and waiting upon God you shall receive renewed strength. In Jesus all needful things are laid up for you. Then enjoy your continual allowance. Never go hungry while the daily bread of grace is on the table of mercy.” Charles Spurgeon “Morning & Evening: Daily Readings
