TOPIC: The Purpose Of Spiritual Gifts
READ: Ephesians 4:12-16 (NKJV)
In our reading yesterday, we saw the gifts Christ gave believers to exercise in His Church. These gifts are not for individuals to personalise or make merchandise of; rather they are for common use in the Body of Christ. Today’s text states clearly the purpose of the gifts which include:
The operation of spiritual gifts in the Church is a continuous process and will result in unity of faith. Members will also gradually attain to the full standard of Christ, become stable in faith, and not easily carried away by every wind of doctrine. Today false teachings and prophecies abound with their attendant deadly but cleverly invented stories and sugar-coated messages. Many have already fallen prey; this shall not be our portion. However, we must ask God to equip His saints with these gifts if they are not available in our groups and to also enable us to operate them (verse 15). This will encourage us to speak the truth, and in love. How do you communicate: In love, in lies or harshly?
PRAYER: Lord help us Lord to identify our gifts and exercise them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
