Christian Devotion on using the gifts God has given
"...As each of you has received a gift (a particular spiritual
talent, a gracious divine endowment), employ it for one
another as [befits] good trustees of God's many-sided grace
[faithful stewards of the extremely diverse powers and
gifts granted to Christians by unmerited favour]. Whoever
speaks, [let him do it as one who utters] oracles of God;
whoever renders service, [let him do it] as with the strength
which God furnishes abundantly, so that in all things God
may be glorified through Jesus Christ (the Messiah). To
Him be the glory and dominion forever and ever (through
endless ages). Amen (so be it)..." - 1 Peter 4:10-11 (AMPC)
We are to share the 'gifts' God has given us, to
uplift and inspire and challenge each other. Our gifts
are meant for encouraging others to rise to their full
potential in God. We all have been given a gift that
we can use to help someone else along the way. No matter
what it is – big or small – we have a part to play and
we can use our gifts for God's glory.
If you are not sure what 'gift' or 'talent' you may
have that God has given you – ask Him to reveal it to
you. It may be what you consider a 'natural ability' or
'talent', but when it's dedicated to the Lord, He can
use it for His purposes. After all, even our natural
abilities and talents are a gift from God. He has given
it to us so we can use it to encourage and inspire others,
and therefore glorify God.
We should use our gifts to encourage each other
For through them, we can bless our sisters and brothers.
