Verse of the Day

Romans 12:3
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.
Study Note:
Paul’s ministry exists only because of grace (1:5), as do spiritual gifts (Greek charismata, v. 6). Realistic assessment of one’s gift (“think with sober judgment”) is essential, and involves a recognition of one’s “measure of faith,” that is, knowing to what extent one has the faith suited for exercising particular gifts (v. 6). The faith by which we are justified is a separate question.
