22 Apr Stir Up the Gifts!
You were given spiritual gifts when you became a member of the Body of Christ. This is a forsaken principal in the Church today, that’s why the church is so weak. If, we intend to recover the strength that God intended in the church we must return to the exercise of each person’s spiritual gifts. So, let’s examine how the human body functions. The body operates not by the cells getting together and voting about what is the best thing to do, but by doing what they individually and particularly are designed to do. It is the job of the head to correlate this, bring it all together, make it operate effectively, and each cell the task of functioning according to design. The body cannot operate when the cells revolt. This is the whole problem with the church today. Paul reminds us that the secret of the operation of the church is that each Christian has a gift. The church begins to live and exercise its impact and influence in society when you begin to exercise your gift.
But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Ephesians 4:7
Prayer: Lord thank you for the spiritual gifts you have given me. Let me not only discover them, but use them to edify your body and glorify your Son in the power of the Holy Spirit.
