Truth for Today
“Earnestly pursue love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy.” I Corinthians 14:1
Thought for Today
How is the church expected to demonstrate the power of God and influence society? The Apostle Paul says the power of the church lies in all Christians discovering and exercising spiritual gifts. God’s intention is to use us as instruments of the Holy Spirit’s power and “delivery agents” for His gifts to someone in need. The gifts of the Holy Spirit are destined for delivery. In other words, the Holy Spirit gives us His gifts to be given away. The Holy Spirit’s gifts are given to people who make themselves consciously and humbly available and willing to be God’s delivery agents.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the gifts of Your Holy Spirit. Jesus, Let me not only discover them but use them to edify Your body and glorify You. Holy Spirit, fill me, use me, and teach me about your spiritual gifts and help me to be ready and willing to use them for Your glory.
