GIFTED BY GRACE
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen. —I Peter 4:10-11
What spiritual gift have you been given by God’s grace? If you are a faithful steward of that gift then you are using it— whether it is a speaking gift or a serving gift. God gave it to you to use with His strength that He might be praised for His glory.
So what spiritual gift do you have? God gave it to you to use by His power. How will you use His giftedness today? In what way will you show forth His glory by being the faithful steward of His grace? Whether you speak or serve, do so for His glory, do so for His praise, do so with His power and be thankful for His grace toward you.
Dear Father, I truly stand amazed at Your grace in my life. Oh, that I would be a faithful steward of that grace You have extended to me. May it be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it!
