Manna For Today: Friday, October 14, 2016
Romans 12:6 – Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them…
1 Peter 4:10-11 – As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Rick Warren teaches us that, “we are made for a mission.” In other words, God has something for each of us to do. The text in Romans 12 tells us that we have been given gifts of grace that we are to use. This same sentiment is echoed by the text in 1 Peter where we are encouraged to serve one another with our gifts.
This is not something we can or will do without taking ownership or responsibility in Christ and under His authority for what He has given us. Taking responsibility means to simply use our gifts for the cause of Christ in the lives of others.
Today, pray and ask God to reveal to you the way in which His grace in terms of gifting has been given to you. When He tells you, and He will, use it for His glory.
Peace and blessings!
