Source of Strength

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

Recently, we took a look at the apostle Paul; continuing on, we as believers would be wise to take on his mindset (1 Corinthians 11:1). 

First comes humility; pride cannot hide in the heart of a believer who understands divine mercy.  GOD’S grace is sufficient to save any sinner, and Paul knew that! 

Second, Paul never lost sight of how far GOD’S grace had brought him. Through all of his constant turmoil and heartaches, as we see in the book of Acts, Paul kept praising the LORD for the great privilege of serving Him. 

Looking at our verse today, Paul never lost sight of his source of strength. Paul desired more of YESHUA and none of himself.

1 Corinthians 15:10A
But by the grace of God I am what I am and His grace toward me was not in vain.                           

We all need to have the mindset of Paul—to know where our sufficiency comes from—GOD’S mercy and grace! Praise the LORD for all that He has done for us, and then let’s get busy working for the Kingdom of GOD! 


Love & Blessings,

Pastor Bruce and Suzi Elman
