A Daily Devotion for Thursday, October 15
I Corinthians 12:4-11
verses 4-6 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.
Todays reading got me thinking about our church family. What would God’s community look like if each one of us actively sought God’s direction to discover our gifts and to put them to work doing His will? Every single one of us, doing what each one is called to do, following God’s will- it would be beautiful! I imagine there are many who feel as I do and are never really certain what their gifts are or what to do with them. These verses lead me to look at my own prayer life. I can’t know God’s will unless I am close enough to God to be able to hear Him. Prayer is my answer for today’s questions.
Holy Lord, what are my gifts? What would you have me do for your kingdom here on earth? I do not want to waste any more time. I want to follow your lead. Amen
