Measures Of Faith

Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.

Romans 12:3 NLT

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Romans 12:3 KJV

And because of God’s gracious gift to me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you should. Instead, be modest in your thinking, and judge yourself according to the amount of faith that God has given you.

Romans 12:3 GNT

I’m speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him.

Romans 12:3 MSG

I’m speaking to you out of deep gratitude for all that God has given me, and especially as I have responsibilities in relation to you. Living then, as every one of you does, in pure grace, it’s important that you not misinterpret yourselves as people who are bringing this goodness to God. No, God brings it all to you. The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what he does for us, not by what we are and what we do for him. And because of God’s gracious gift to me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you should. Instead, be modest in your thinking, and judge yourself according to the amount of faith that God has given you. Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. God is not looking for kindness or acceptance and he despises hatred and violence he wants honor and love back for what he has done and given to you, to you and I. He wants us to live and think equally. Not praising ourselves thinking we’re better than the other but praising him and being grateful for what he has done to give us freedom and life. It is by the account of your acceptance and actions that God will see you as you are as he wants you to see others and by that he will know the measure of your trueness and faith unto him that is when he will know if you are truly honorable to his gift he gave us.

If we are willing to love first as he himself would and respect and honor him in thanks for what he’s done. For if you are truly honoring to him and respecting and faithful and living in spirit and not in pleasures than you are grateful and faithful, however if you believe you have higher power than God and think that you are more important than he or another than you don’t show God gratitude or respect for your gift he has given you and it doesn’t phase you that you are alive today because he our savior has given you life saving us from death, he has done great things and deserves our honor and respect but if you faulted to do that you are not faithful, you are nothing, you have not learned in honor of putting your master first and respect for him you are unworthy for there is no one better than another or worthy of less or more. We are all accepted and equal in the eyes of God. Not one of us different in judgements we are all worth saving all worth his gifts. In that way we show him true honor and gratitude in all he has done. When we live in the spirit we humble ourselves to let him lead us and be better than us most important of all. We show him respect by not turning on another but living in grace of life. The larger your faith is the more in image we are in likeness to him and the more knowledge of understanding him as a person and savior we have. The more knowledge we have, the larger respect we have to give him in honor. No one is different in him we are all equal.
