All Christians Must Utilize Their Spiritual Gifts To Glorify God

Passage: 1 Corinthians 14

The Holy Spirit enhances believers with various spiritual abilities. Each spiritual gift must be used to prosper the Christian community and ultimately prosper the kingdom of God. Your spiritual gift is a special ability given to you by God (via the Holy Spirit); it should not be pocketed but be effectively and positively used! Each Christian must use his or her spiritual gifts to aid the spiritual growth of others.

Our spiritual gifts must bless the body of Christ as Paul admonished the Corinthian Christians. Paul said,

“… So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. For this reason the one who speaks in a tongue should pray that they may interpret what they say” (1 Corinthians 14:12-13).

Spiritual Gifts Are Meant For The Growth Of God’s Kingdom

The gifts of God are given to men and women to prosper the kingdom of God. The gifts are not meant for a show! They are also not meant for receiving worldly riches. Believers must understand that God’s gifts given to us must benefit the body of Christ – It must prosper the kingdom of God!

Every Christian must ensure to properly use his or her spiritual gifts. Every Christian must challenge himself to serve God well. Jehovah, who blesses people with his gifts of the Holy Spirit will one day request from us an explanation on how we have used them.

Each Christian will account for how he has used his or her spiritual gifts. It is therefore very important that every Christian carefully demonstrates his or her spiritual ability, to ensure that God’s expectations are met. Christians must ensure that their spiritual activities glorify God.

Pray For The Grace to Properly Use Your Spiritual Gifts

Dear God, I understand that I must carefully exercise my spiritual ability to glorify your name. I must ensure that I utilize my gifts of the Holy Spirit to prosper your kingdom; therefore, I ask for your grace to meet this expectation. Help me to serve you in humility to ensure your name is glorified. Please let my spiritual activities prosper your kingdom. At the end of my earthly race, please count me worthy to inherit your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I have prayed, amen!
