1 Corinthians 12:4-7 (NIVUK)
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. 7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
What talents and skills do you have – what is it that you are good at?
What are the things that drive you – what do you get excited by?
What has God placed on your heart?
We’ll all have different answers to these questions, we are all unique, but at the same time, we do have something in common through these answers. God gifts us, guides us and inspires us by his Spirit, not that we might feel good about ourselves (although isn’t it awesome to see God at work in ourselves!) but that we might use these things to serve and build up others. Think about how you’ve answered those questions – how could those answers be used to build up God’s People?
Father, show me what you are doing in my life through your Spirit. Help me to use that for the benefit of your people.
