Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith.
Beloved, life is short! It’s shorter than we all think. Moreover, we are not our own. Therefore, we can’t just randomly choose what we want to do with our lives.
Just as a knife is designed to cut, a plane to fly, a cheetah to sprint and a lion to roar–every human is designed by God purposefully. You are fashioned to fulfil God’s will for your life. Nothing is more tragic than a design that doesn’t serve the function for its shape!
One clue to your function is your spiritual gifting. After rebirth and baptism in the Spirit, God gives each one of us at least one charisma (gift) to enable us to serve the church and the world as the Spirit wills. Dear friend, how clear are you about your spiritual gift or gifts?
You and I cannot afford to wonder what supernatural abilities God has given us. We must know, understand and utilise all our spiritual gifts effectively for the glory of God. Dear friend, what is the ONE spiritual gift you KNOW you possess? By this we mean only the kind of ability you did NOT have before you were saved.
For how long will you speculate, deny, neglect or hesitate about your spiritual endowment? Someone out there needs your unique anointing. Someone out there desperately needs your teaching, administration, mercy, word of wisdom, leadership, giving or healing–to name a few gifts. There must be no more denial, hesitation or procrastination! If necessary, get pastoral assistance to identify your gifting beyond a shadow of doubt. Your Kingdom rewards depend on it!
