Gifts

April 13, 2017

Have you ever gotten an unexpected gift? Something that you weren't expecting, hadn't asked for or anticipated, yet it was 'oh so perfect'. Gifts are exciting. Gifts that are perfect for you are even more exciting and very excellent. They make you smile and fill you with joy.

 


'God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit.'

We all receive a gift that is something special. Something special, that is specifically designed for us. A special gift to be used by us. A gift from God's Spirit. A special and specific gift from God. Yes, it's a super awesome gift and we want to handle it with care. That doesn't mean that we put it up on a high shelf where no one can touch it, because the only one using that type of gift is dust bunnies and cobwebs. Our gifts are to be used. Everyday. Not just on special occasions, but every time it's needed.

'God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit.'

God's various ministries are carried out everywhere. Ministries for everyone done by each one of us. Our gifts are specifically designed so that we can use our gift optimally. Easy for us to handle and easy for us to hand out. Specifically designed for us to utilize for God and for the benefit of those in the family of God.

'God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all.'

God's various expressions of power. Wow! That just knocks my socks off. Whatever, whenever and however God's power is needed His gifts are in action everywhere. God is using us, the gift recipient, to express His Power in action everywhere. Think about that. It's the most exciting thing ever.

'Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits.'

Each person. Not just the Bill Johnson's, Kari Jobe's or Joyce Meyers's of the world. Every one of us. Not just those you know who work in church leadership or take part in a ministry outreach. Every one of us. That includes you and me. Our gift is specifically designed for us to utilize for God and for the benefit of those in the family of God.

Your Gift. Whatever it is, take it joyfully and run with it; wherever it leads.

1 Corinthians 12:4-7 MSG
"God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits."
