Rom 12:3

12:3 by the grace given to me. 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.
