The Everyday You Can't See (1)

'God and... the word of His grace... can build you up and give you an inheritance.' Acts 20:32 NIV


Right. Story time: ‘There are these two young fish swimming along and they meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, “Morning, boys. How’s the water?” And one young fish looks over at the other and goes: “What in the seven seas is water?”’ A similar story was told in a graduation speech by a guy called DF Wallace, who then went on to make his point: that the normal, the everyday, the cli-ché bits of our lives (even clichéd story about fish) can have colossal value that we skip over because we know them so well. Sometimes we have to defend the value of the totally obvious to ourselves. How much more so with God’s grace—the everyday truth of our lives that we can’t always see? God’s grace simply means God giving us more of Him-self than we have any right to. For our day’s work. For the work of talking to other people about Jesus. For our hearts and their emotional well–being. For the people around us. For our healing. For their healing. God will always give us more of Himself than we hope or deserve. He wants to ‘build you up and give you an inheritance.’ We forget this. The worship songs get over–learned and the sermons get stale unless we remind ourselves, even daily. You are not just a spring of God’s grace that pops up in a desert—you’re part of God’s great river of grace, rushing through history, carrying every believer. He’s our water. And He wants to flow through us.
