Your Unique Gifts – Daily Devotion


DO YOU HAVE A UNIQUE ABILITY? WHAT IS IT? I CAN WHISTLE LIKE A BIRD.
SEE: (TWEETING) THIS IS…
THIS IS TOTALLY POINTLESS, BUT I TELL YOU,
IT’S A BIG HIT WITH THE KIDS. IN THE BIBLE, PAUL TELLS US
THAT PEOPLE WHO BELONG TO JESUS HAVE SPECIAL GIFTS, TOO. 1 CORINTHIANS 12 OFFERS A
DESCRIPTION OF WHAT PAUL CALLS “SPIRITUAL GIFTS” AND SOME
WARNINGS ABOUT HOW TO USE THEM. FIRST, SPIRITUAL GIFTS
ARE JUST THAT, THEY ARE GIFTS, AND NOT EARNED BY MERIT. SECONDLY, ALL SPIRITUAL GIFTS
ARE FROM ONE SOURCE, THE HOLY SPIRIT. THIRD,
ALL BELIEVERS DO NOT HAVE ALL THE SAME SPIRITUAL GIFTS, AND SPIRITUAL MATURITY
IS NOT DETERMINED BY THE GIFTS YOU HAVE
OR DON’T HAVE. AND FINALLY,
AND THIS IS THE KEY, ALL SPIRITUAL GIFTS SHOULD
BE USED FOR ONE PURPOSE: TO HELP PEOPLE BECOME
MORE LIKE JESUS. THERE ARE A LOT
OF WAYS TO DISCOVER THE SPIRITUAL GIFTS YOU HAVE, AND ONE OF THE BEST WAYS IS TO ASK THOSE
WHO KNOW YOU BEST. THERE ARE EVEN SPIRITUAL
GIFT TESTS THAT YOU CAN TAKE THAT CAN BEGIN TO POINT YOU
IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. BUT HERE’S THE POINT: THE HOLY SPIRIT
HAS GIVEN YOU A GIFT, AND IT’S NOT A POINTLESS GIFT. IT’S NOT LIKE
WHISTLING LIKE A BIRD. IT’S A GIFT WITH A VERY,
VERY IMPORTANT PURPOSE: TO HELP OTHERS
BECOME MORE LIKE JESUS.

  1. thank you for the reminder, however I would have to argue that whistling like a bird is not pointless. if it is your gift and it can bring a smile to someone's face and open the door to Christ then it is never pointless

  2. I hope I did not bury my spiritual gift out of my own ignorance. I wanna use it everyday, as much as possible, for the Glory of our Lord Jesus until the day He comes for His church🙏.
