Use them well // 12-05-20

“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another…Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter‬ ‭4:10-11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The gifts, or special abilities, that the Holy Spirit gives us are not primarily for our own benefit, they are for the purpose of serving others and bringing glory to God! We are urged to eagerly desire the most helpful gifts, so I’m wondering which gift is going to be the most helpful right now in the work God has given me to do? The ability to speak wisdom or a word of knowledge? To have great faith or to heal? To perform miracles or to prophecy? To discern spirits, to speak in tongues or to interpret tongues? We so need these gifts being used to help each other, to encourage each other, they are the tools to build each other up! Let’s get equipped and ask God for the gifts we need the most to serve the people we know and to make the greatest difference in the situations we find ourselves in. Lord, I want to bring you great glory so give me the boldness to ask and the courage to use the gifts you so generously want to give. Amen 🙏🏼
