Concrete Expressions of Grace

“Concrete expressions of grace” would not be a bad translation of what is normally translated ‘spiritual gifts’ in 1 Corinthians 12 et al.

Yesterday the speaker at my church interrupted his message to say, “There’s people here with a pain at the top of the left hip, caused perhaps by a growth / cyst of some sort in that area” He pointed to exactly the area on his own body.

Three people responded at the time, and a fourth later said it described exactly a condition they were suffering from, in a crowd of maybe 120 or so.

All were prayed for, and testified to a sense of, “God knows me.”

Stuff like this happens all the time.

His grace is continually being poured out, upon grace.

Sometimes this is expressed really concretely in a ‘secret’ revealed, a new prayer language learnt, or incidents of healings in our midst.

The Kingdom of God has been brought close enough to grab at. ย Disciple, it’s available to you today.

Could you reach for it today?
