EFFECTIVE SERVICE

June 27, 2016

Monday

 

1 Peter 4:10 

 

As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

 

 

LESSON

 

God has given every Christian at least one “gift” that he or she can and should share with other believers, and in so doing serve them. The “gift” in view is evidently one of the so-called spiritual gifts). “Manifold” means many-faceted or variegated. God bestows His grace on different people in different ways. The gifts are aspects of God’s grace. No Christian can claim that he or she has nothing to offer the church. The Lord of the church has distributed His bounty with masterly variety to enable His people successfully to encounter the ‘manifold trials’ to which they are subjected.

Every believer has at least one spiritual gift. The discovery of your spiritual gifts can mark the beginning of one of the most rewarding journeys of the spiritual life. Ultimately, your gifts are spiritual and given by the Holy Spirit to help you live the Christian life and glorify God “through Jesus Christ.” God has gifted you and He wants to work through your gifts today.
