Has God Oversold the Product?

 “… God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound unto every good work.” - (2 Corinthians 9:8 KJV)

This is the most superlative and emphatic verse in the New Testament about the grace we need to live in to serve Christ. I once heard Dr. A.W. Tozer preach on this text. After he read the verse with much inflection, he paused, shook his head and said, “Sometimes you cannot help but allow the thought that God has oversold the product in the New Testament!” Of course, he went on to explain that God has not oversold the product. We undersell the product because our access into this grace is flawed.

Think of this with me for a moment. God is able to make all grace, not just some grace, abound toward us, not just trickle in our direction, that we, (he repeats that for emphasis meaning it’s not just for the pastor, or the missionary, but for every believer), always, not just sometimes, may have all sufficiency, not just some sufficiency, in all things, not just some things, may abound, not just go limping, unto every good work, not just the ones we like.

Once you have meditated on this verse ask yourself this question, “True or false?”

If we answer that question as we should by saying it’s true, should that not give us the courage to tackle the things God is leading us to do that we know we cannot do? Are you doing anything that can only be explained by the supernatural reality that He is, only He can, and He did because you found access into this grace?
