Gifts of God – 5

Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.

We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.

I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority.

For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

Ro 12:3, Ro 12:6-8, Ep 3:7, Ep 2:8-9, Co 2:9-10, 2Ti 1:6-7

    Mine is the gift of encouragement, and I so appreciate these encouraging words for all of us today. Imagine all of us diligently using our God given gifts for Christ and His Kingdom! Lord Jesus, help us to be faithful!

  2. Thanks for the encouragement, Phil. And, I pray that in this next year our Lord will continue to bear much fruit in and through you with the gift(s) He has given to you to exercise on His behalf.
