Verse of the Day (July 1, 2020) #BMSeminary – {grace} The divine, undeserved favor that called Paul to be an apostle and gave him spiritual authority (Rom. 1:1–5; cf. 1 Cor. 3:10; Gal. 2:9) and also produced sincere humility (1 Tim. 1:12–14). {sober judgment} The exercise of sound judgment, which will lead believers to recognize that in themselves they are nothing (cf. 1 Pet. 5:5), and will yield the fruit of humility (cf. 3 John 9). {measure of faith} The correct proportion of the spiritual gift—or supernatural endowment and ability—the Holy Spirit gives each believer (see note on 1 Pet. 4:10) so he may fulfill his role in the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:7; 11). “Faith” is not saving faith, but rather faithful stewardship, the kind and quantity required to use one’s own particular gift (cf. 1 Cor. 12:7; 11). Every believer receives the exact gift and resources he needs to fulfill his role in the body of Christ. [MacArhtur Study Bible]
