Word for Today
Scriptures from the Holy Bible, King James (Authorised)
Version of 1611
1 Peter, chapter 4, verses 10-11
As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another,
as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister,
let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things
may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for
ever and ever. Amen.
Holy Bible -- King James
Selah (Pause, and consider these things)
God, our Master Gift Giver, has given each of us an ability in which we
can readily serve and honor Him. It might be in teaching, building, caring,
or any of a likely myriad of other forms (and yes, there are probably some
to whom more than one ability has been given: to whom much is given, much
is expected, as well!). If ever anyone was so gifted that they were perfectly
ready immediately, I don't believe I've heard of them. The need, after
ministering in the ways God has prepared us for, is to continue to grow
and learn, to prove ourselves worthy of that calling, thereby honoring
and glorifying the One Who loves us. As in our ministrations, in our growth
we also praise God. Praise and honor and glory be to our Lord forever.
By Leonard L Hamilton Jr, Encouraging Words Ministries
As you have been enabled, use your gift or gifts
from God to honor Him, praising Him with everything that you do, and glorify
Him by acknowledging Jesus as your Saviour. He gives liberally to all;
we only need accept His gift of grace. Do it today.
