Day 5 - Gifted Ones…For God’s Glory

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Romans 12:3-8 (NIV)

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.  For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.  We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully

Reflection

God has provided for His people by generously distributing gifts to all.  Since all gifts come from the Father, and no one did anything to merit a gift, all are on equal standing before Him.  Seeing one other as gifted brothers and sisters prevents envy and jealousy in this way.  God has provided particularly for each one of us and in so doing provides for us all.

Responding to the Word

Let’s pray for those in our missional group, or campus fellowship.  Thank God for each person and the way He has gifted them.  Then pray that as a group we may all, as His church, share the rich gifts He has given with others so that they may experience His love.
