Morning Coffee 9/28/14 What to do with all these bricks? (Your Gifts Are Not For You!)
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen. (1 Peter 4:10-11 NLT)
Hello family I hope you are well. We know God has given us gifts and talents; lately God has been really driving the point home that all the gifts and talents He has given me are not meant for me! I knew this but didn’t truly take it to heart.
No one person can do everything! We all have gifts that we need to be using to help the body of Christ. I am not just speaking about the body around the world but our local church bodies, in our schools, in our neighborhoods, wherever God sends us!
God has blessed us with these gifts and talents. Don’t take them and use it for you own self indulgent. I am good with computers, it is one of my greatest strengths but it has also shown itself be one of my greatest weakness. I have had many battles with pornography and other areas that are on the dark side of the computer realm. But I refuse to allow my gifts to be misused. God is showing me a picture of a brick; I can take that brick and do a whole lot of damage to myself and others. Or I can take that same brick and put it with other bricks and use it to rebuild a broken community.
God has given us all a brick or bricks. What will you do with yours?
Much Love & God Bless
