Day 164

“Now you have every spiritual gift you need”
1 Corinthians 1:7

There are many different beliefs about God’s gifts, but one thing is sure – He has given us many gifts. These gifts are to equip us until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. God has given us everything we need to live our lives until His return.

Think of it this way; God’s gifts are a like a work person’s tool box. Whatever the person needs to execute their work, they only need to reach into the box and get the right tool. The right tool at the right time is always there for the skilled work person. There is more; the finished work is the testimony of the work person, not their tools. How we admire fine furniture, not the tools that made it.

God’s gifts should always give Him the glory. When Jesus used the gifts, He revealed the character and nature of the Father, bringing Him Glory. So, we too are to use His gifts as needed and bring Glory to the Father.

“That all nations might believe and obey Him –
to the only wise God be glory forever
through Jesus Christ! Amen.
Romans 16:26b-27
