I love this verse in Acts along with its context:
When [Barnabas] arrived and saw what the grace of God had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts.What a wonderful thought, "what the grace of God had done."
In the end, when you think about it, this is what it's all about for all of us in Jesus and in our work in mission for Jesus to the world. It's all about God's grace at work in us and through us, out to others. No matter what we do, if God's grace in Jesus doesn't underlie all, it's to no avail.
Let's remember this and seek to make it a watchword and watch of our heart. That we might know that grace in our own lives, and see it in the lives of others.
What might you like to add about this amazing grace?
