Working Hard, Dependent on Grace.

Series: Atomic Habits | Week 4: Little By Little

Read 1 Corinthians 15:10

“But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out His special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by His grace.”

1. To whom does Paul ascribe his ability to work hard?
2. What are the results he is talking about in this verse?
3. Where is Paul’s identity?

The grace that saves us also changes us. Paul knew the value of hard work and was honest about being a hard worker. But he also attributed the ability to work hard to the grace and favor of God in his life. Ask God today for the ability to know the work He has called you to do and for the grace to get to work doing it! Sometimes you won’t feel like it. Override that feeling with commitment and pray for your commitment to breed passion.
