Spiritual Gifts Are Meant To Glorify God
Passage: 1 Corinthians 14
The gifts of prophecy and speaking with diverse tongues are expected to be utilized for edifying the body of Christ. Paul admonished the Corinthian brethren to be decent with their religious practices and ensure that demonstration of their spiritual gifts benefit others, and promote God’s kingdom.
“Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophesy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:39-40).
Utilize God’s Gifts and Positively
The baptism of the Holy Spirit (impacted by God) comes with special gifts (1 Corinthians 12:4-11). Those gifts are expected to solidify the body of Christ and also help Christians prosper in God’s kingdom. Therefore, believers are to ensure they become productive for God’s kingdom. Meanwhile, the gifts of the Holy Spirit can elevate a person into the limelight, and the fellow can be tempted to be proud; therefore, anyone who demonstrates a spiritual gift must be careful to operate in humility.
Any Christian who demonstrates a spiritual gift must ensure that God is glorified in whatever he or she does! The fellow must not arrogate God’s glory unto him or herself since Jehovah does not share his glory with anyone. In essence, every demonstration of the Holy Spirit’s gift must not focus on glorifying a man or woman – it must be focused on glorifying God!
God has bestowed a divine blessing on every individual in the world. We all have a special grace that we are supposed to use to serve God.Click to tweet
