BIBLE VERSE FOR THURSDAY
Thursday, April 19, 2018
So in Christ we, who are many, from one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.
It is the same task for us as it was for Paul--to reach our world for Christ. We first accomplish that by bridging our lives under the authority of Jesus, allowing Him to take our weaknesses as well as strengths, and corporately, through the body of Christ, work towards fulfilling His purpose on earth.
We need not feel intimidated if something seems beyond our reach because the Holy Spirit is our empowering and spiritual gifts are often discovered by taking risks.
The best time to develop our spiritual gifts is early in our Christian faith, otherwise we risk becoming complacent, especially concerning activities we think do not involve us.
We mature in our faith as we engage and serve.
Listen to the Holy Spirit as He guides us in the direction to reach people who need to hear about Jesus and the Word of God.
Gracious God, We trust Your promise that every Christian is uniquely gifted by You. Help us to discern where our gifting lies and enable us to fulfill our roles within Your church. Thank You, Lord.
