"God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another." 1 Peter 4:10
Two questions for today:
1. What is your gift?
2. How will you use it to serve another well?
The last two-three years God has been revealing to me just how important this is! It's huge! There are so many spiritual gift tests available, which can be helpful tools. It is also important to have the gifts confirmed in you by others around you.
Once you have confidence in them, embrace them! Run with them! Get creative in ways you can use your gifts.
For me, I have Creative Ability, Teaching, and Encouraging, among some other lesser gifts.
I chose to concentrate in these areas with ministry. I made a decision to lead a girls small group, so that I can use my teaching and encouraging. I am embracing writing and videography for my creative outlets in the church. It becomes a sort of filter for the decisions I make, for what things I say 'yes' and to which I say 'no'.
Find another, seek them out and serve them well today.
