Spiritual Gifts – Gifts from God
Message in the picture
“Spiritual Gifts – God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1 Peter 4:10 (NLT)
Scripture for the day
1 Corinthians 12:27-31 Analytical-Literal Translation (ALT) Now you are [the] body of Christ and parts from [each] part [fig., individually parts of it]. 2. 28 And indeed [those] whom God set in the Assembly [are]: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, next miraculous powers, next spiritual gifts of healings, helpers, leaders [or, administrators], [various] kinds of tongues. 29 All [are] not apostles, are they? All [are] not prophets, are they? All [are] not teachers, are they? All [are] not [workers of] miraculous powers, are they? 30 All do not have spiritual gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak in tongues, do they? All do not interpret [or, translate], d, do they? 31 But be earnestly desiring the better spiritual gifts. And yet I show to you a far better way.
Thought for the day
If we could only learn to love each other and work together in unity as the body of Christ, using the Spiritual gifts from God to build the kingdom of God. The Spiritual gifts are essential and of great value when used properly, BUT, the “better way” mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:31 is in 1 Corinthians 13. “If I make use of the tongues of men and of angels, and have not love, I am like sounding brass, or a loud-tongued bell. 2 And if I have a prophet’s power, and have knowledge of all secret things; and if I have all faith, by which mountains may be moved from their place, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And if I give all my goods to the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it is of no profit to me.
Love, the magic four-letter word must be part of all we do for Christ; be blessed my friends—Tim.
