DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Serve God With Your Spiritual Gifts
God redeemed us not just to get to heaven, but to also serve Him while we are alive. God makes available to each believer spiritual gifts that are needed to be effective in serving Him. Without these gifts, nothing one does can have eternal value. If you desire to amount to something important in God’s kingdom, spiritual gift is necessary. However, there is the danger for one who has been endowed with spiritual gifts to become arrogant and think of himself or herself as so important that one is indispensable. No one gift is more important than the other. Neither is one gift inferior to another. No minister, no matter how anointed he may be, is indispensable. Each person ministering with the spiritual gift given to him, is just like a part of the body – different from other parts, but not superior or inferior to others. The important thing is that each one maximizes the use of his gift.
Point of Emphasis: Do not think you are superior to other Christians, maximize the use of your spiritual gifts.
Prayer Point: Holy Spirit, equip me with the spiritual gifts I need to become fruitful in the vineyard of God.
