My dear People,
Sometimes people who want to throw their
weight around ask, “Do you know who I
am?” (Often they’re probably nobodies just
pretending to have powerful connections).
However, no one standing before God’s throne
of grace dare ask that question. (Being someone from a prestigious family or the son or
daughter of godly parents or claims of having
contributed much to God’s work won’t get you
any credit in heaven).
When we stand before God, all of us stand on
level ground as equals in need of grace and
mercy. I’m not special in any way because I
have been a “servant of God”. I too need God’s
grace—like everyone else—no less, but also, no
more.
What has happened to me, happens to lots of
people because we live in a Fallen world. I’ve
seen little kids (one was an infant less than
two months old) battling cancer. My situation
is not so bad is it? As the saying goes, “I cried
for shoes, until I met the man who had no
feet.”
God has been marvelously good to me. I have
lived a “charmed” life because of God’s abundant and lavish grace. All I want is grace—no
more, no less. I don’t deserve grace any more
than anyone else. You yourselves are the channels of grace to me. Thank you for all the love
and care showered on me.
In the end, God works for good—in all things
(Rom. 8:28).
Love,
Kuru
