” Uniquely Gifted “

Romans 12:6-8

We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.
If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith.

If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently;
if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. (NIV)

Christian Fellowship
The church is not a building.

It is the people who belong to God because they have put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Each believer has been given gifts by the Holy Spirit.

These are spiritual tools which enable God to do His work, through His people.
And He gives a different selection of gifts to different people so that they are uniquely gifted to serve Him.

These special gifts need to be used.
How we use them will show the kind of relationship we have with God who has given them to us.

If we have a gift of giving, we need to be generous; if we have responsibility for others we must be diligent; and if we are called to help others who are in very difficult circumstances we must cheerfully put up with things which we might not like.

Christian Fellowship We all have these gifts, but like tools left in a box they are useless if we do not use them.
Many believers think that because they are not clergy, they have no gifts; but that is not true.

God has given spiritual gifts to all according to His wisdom and purpose.
So we need to find out what gifts we have, and then learn to use them wisely.

Other more mature Christians may help us in this.
We may not use the gifts perfectly at first, but we need to keep practicing and asking the Lord for His help.

Also we may try to use His gifts for our own glory.
That is not right but we can and must repent of self-centered serving so that we may become useful to Him and give Him the glory.

Prayer for the day : –

Father God. Thank You for giving me spiritual gifts when You included me in Your family.
I am sorry when I have ignored the privilege You gave me and have not served You in Your power.

I am sorry when I have used Your gifts, but in a wrong way or with a wrong attitude.
I am sorry when I have made mistakes and given up because I have not trusted You to help me persevere in serving You.

Please forgive me and help me to serve You as You have chosen in Your strength and with the abilities You give to me. In Jesus’ Name.Amen.
