Ephesians 4:7 (NKJV) But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
If you are a Child of God, you have spiritual abilities, and it may be the case that you have some spiritual abilities that you’re not aware of-untapped gifts just waiting to be opened (I Corinthians 12:1-12). Please family don’t be like me, I waited a long time before accepting this realization in my life.
The Bible says God’s given some people a gift for declaring His truth with power and clarity. Some possess the gift of encouragement-the ability to provide comfort and cheer, even in the worst situations. Some have the gift of giving; what fulfills them is sharing what they have to bless others in need. Still others have the gift of mercy; they enjoy helping people in hardship or trouble without blaming or judging. Do you know what is your gift in God’s plan?
When these gifts are used and developed, the church becomes a dynamic place where lives are transformed and God’s Kingdom is built. When you find and use your gifts, you will see God’s love and generosity more clearly, and you’ll feel fulfilled like never before. Discover your gifts, and use them to advance God’s Kingdom! I hope this message provokes some inquiry and reflection for you today. The Lord has need of you, enjoy your day.
Point to ponder- God doesn’t call the qualified; He qualifies the called.
All for His Glory,
Pastor James Baker, Jr.
