6 Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads,[a] with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.
I just love this scripture, especially the first line…Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them…
God intended for us to have differing gifts and dreams. He gave us those gifts and dreams. The purpose of these different gifts is to reach out to the lost and share God’s love through different methods. I love thinking about how there can be someone in this world that only I can reach, and only through a specific gift that I have, and all on purpose from God. How else can we explain our intense desire to share our gift with others? We want to reach people, we want to change lives, we want to make a difference. Where did that inbred, desperate desire come from?
We all have a gift according to the grace given to us. Now let’s use them.
What is a gift you have that you desire so much to share?
