August 29 – Use Your Gifts For God

Daily Bible Life

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are meant to enhance the Christian community and help the kingdom of God prosper. Paul admonished the Corinthian Christians for this purpose and said, “… So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. For this reason, the one who speaks in a tongue should pray that they may interpret what they say” (1 Corinthians 14:12-13).

 

Lesson:

The gifts of God are given to men and women to prosper for the kingdom of God. The gifts are not for a showcase but are very important. They are also, not meant for receiving worldly riches. Believers must understand that God’s gifts given to us must benefit the body of Christ – It must prosper the kingdom of God! Every Christian must ensure to properly use his or her spiritual gifts. Every Christian must challenge himself to serve God well. Jehovah, who blesses people with his gifts of the Holy Spirit will one day request from us, an explanation of how we have used them. Each Christian will account for how he has used his spiritual gifts. It is, therefore, very important that every Christian carefully demonstrates his/her spiritual ability, to ensure that God’s expectations are met. Christians must ensure that their spiritual activities glorify God.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, I understand that I must carefully exercise my spiritual ability to glorify your name. I must ensure that I utilize my gifts of the Holy Spirit to prosper your kingdom. Therefore, I ask for your grace to meet this expectation. Help me to serve you in humility to ensure your name is glorified. Please let my spiritual activities prosper, your kingdom. At the end of my earthly race, please count me worthy to inherit your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
