Romans 12:7-8 (NET) If it is service, he must serve; if it is teaching, he must teach; 8 if it is exhortation, he must exhort; if it is contributing, he must do so with sincerity; if it is leadership, he must do so with diligence; if it is showing mercy, he must do so with cheerfulness.
One misconception I once had about Christ’s gifts was that they were only limited to prophetic and miraculous manifestations. But as I began to study more on this subject, I learned that the gifts of God are not limited to spiritual manifestations. They can also be manifested through an empowerment of the mind.
Some people have the gift of leadership. They notice that it is easy for them to lead and organize people: they have administrative skills. Others have the gift of showing mercy. They are the ones who have extra interest and desire for philanthropy; reaching out to the poor and orphans, etc. Some others have the gift of giving or contributing. Just like the teacher has the gift to teach God’s word, and God always provides fresh word as he depends on Him. The giver has the grace to give, and God always provides extra substance for him to distribute when he realizes and takes responsibility for his assignments.
God’s word for you today is that whatever gift He has given you, He does not expect you to ignore it. He has instructed and empowered you to use your gifts for the furtherance of His kingdom here on earth (see Rom 12:7, 1 Cor 12:7).
Go into today determining not to hide your light under a bushel. Let your light shine by not hiding God’s priceless gifts within you (See Mat 5:15-16).
Prayer: Ask the Lord to empower you with wisdom to use your gifts most effectively.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
