Peter writes, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks words of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.”
1 Peter 4:10
Paul tells us, “Now there are varieties of gifts, from the same Spirit…to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge…to another faith…to another gifts of healing…All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-11
What is your gift? Are you good at organizing events? Do you like to encourage moms of young children? Are you a patient listener? Do you love caring for children? Do you have a knack for writing? Are you a prayer warrior? Do you have a way to talk to elderly people with dementia?
Peter tells us everyone has a gift—and that includes you! Not sure what your gift is? What do you enjoy doing? What are you good at doing? Can you do those things to the glory of the Lord? If so, that is probably one of your gifts. If you are not sure what your gift is, or how to use it, ask the Lord to show you.
