Genuine Humility-Part 10

March 31, 2015

 

1 Corinthians 12: 4-11– “There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”

As an individual you have a responsibility in the body of Christ. Each of us is gifted with a spiritual gift and we are to exercise them accordingly. Every individual member needs to walk in the Spirit. The most joyful you can be as a child of God is to be walking dead center in the will of God, exercising the gift that He has gifted you with and not being encumbered with self-approval and not being encumbered with self-disapproval, but living a self-surrendered life and enjoying your life on earth with Christ. My friend, we are all called to a heavenly life on earth!
