Again the Lord speaks to us today regarding the use of His blessed gifts.
We at first need to identify the blessed gifts in us and then as per the Lord's way, we need to use them for His glory and purpose.
"For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness."
Romans 12 : 4-8(NKJV)
The blessed part of the varied gifts in varied people is that they commonly form part of one body and even though may have different uses, are vital and important.
As the body is perfectly healthy when all its parts functions normally and are at its best, so is when we use all our gifts perfectly well, the body of Christ which is the church is at its best.
When the Lord equips us with His blessed gifts, He also fills us with His strength and wisdom to use it for His glory. He also gives us the various opportunities and resources with which we can accomplish His blessed task in our life.
May the Lord bless us and help us to identify His blessed gifts in us and may He enable us to use it for His glory,
may He help us to lovingly do so and passionately seek to excel in the gifts of the Lord.
