“…As each of you has received a gift (a particular spiritual talent, a gracious divine endowment), employ it for one another as [befits] good trustees of God’s many-sided grace [faithful stewards of the extremely diverse powers and gifts granted to Christians by unmerited favour]. Whoever speaks, [let him do it as one who utters] oracles of God; whoever renders service, [let him do it] as with the strength which God furnishes abundantly, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ (the Messiah). To Him be the glory and dominion forever and ever (through endless ages). Amen (so be it)…” – 1 Peter 4: 10-11 (AMP)

We are to share the ‘gifts’ God has given us, to uplift and inspire and challenge each other. Our gifts are meant for encouraging others to rise to their full potential in God. We all have been given a gift that we can use to help someone else along the way. No matter what it is – big or small – we have a part to play and we can use our gifts for God’s glory.

 

If you are not sure what ‘gift’ or ‘talent’ you may have that God has given you – ask Him to reveal it to you. It may be what you consider a ‘natural ability’ or ‘talent’, but when it’s dedicated to the Lord, He can use it for His purposes. After all, even our natural abilities and talents are a gift from God. He has given it to us so we can use it to encourage and inspire others, and therefore glorify God.

We should use our gifts to encourage each other

For through them, we can bless our sisters and brothers.
