What’d You Get?
1 Corinthians 1:4-5 NLT
I always thank my God for you and for the gracious gifts he has given you, now that you belong to Christ Jesus. Through him, God has enriched your church in every way—with all of your eloquent words and all of your knowledge.
It is incredible how God blesses us with people who know Him! That is an amazing thing He does for His children! He makes sure that they have like-minded brethren there for us to help us grow up in Him. Along with that, God graciously furnishes us with excellent gifts, tools of the Spirit that enable us to live with power!
Pooled together, our totality of gifts in one church equals one entire Body of Christ! Imagine that! Each Spirit-filled and obedient church in the world today is the likeness of Jesus Christ to its community! A beacon, a lighthouse of love and hope to a dying, mourning, desperately seeking world.
Let us make deliberate moves to discover our own gifts that God has endowed us with and set our hearts and minds to be obedient with them, offering them up for His use to bring lost people to Himself and to bring healing and enabling to the ailing, even within the Family of God. Let us seek to be able to speak eloquently and powerfully of the love of Jesus and also take steps to educate ourselves in the knowledge of God, through His Word daily and by submitting to excellent, God-placed leaders.
What’s your gift? What did Father give you?
