Today's Devotional

Today's verse

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. ~1 Peter 4:10
Thoughts on today's verse...
What gifts has God given you? Oh, not just the "things" He has blessed you with, but the actual gifts that He has endowed you with that bless the church?

I've often wondered about this in my own life. What gifts, what attributes do I have that are gifts from God? What things do I do or gifts that I possess do I use to bless the church and further the cause of Jesus Christ? These questions cause me to pause and reflect. I sorely want to see the ministry of the church proceed forward. Am I assisting or do I hinder its furtherance?
My prayer...
Lord, you bless each and everyone of us with gifts. Please make it abundantly clear what my gifts are so I may minister to others. Allow me to not merely go to church, but to be the church. In Jesus' name I pray ~Amen!

So? How about you?

Yours, because we're His,

Tamara
