And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists, others as pastors and teachers,to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry,* for building up the body of Christ,… Ephesians 4:12-13
We were all given different talents, passions, interests, and gifts from the Holy Spirit. These gifts were given to us to share with the world to build up the body of Christ. We are not to keep so humble, and modest about these gifts that we do not utilize them for the good of others. We must discern our gifts through prayer, sharing with others what they see in us, and self-reflection. Once we accept our gifts we must use them to build up the kingdom of God in this time and place.
What are your gifts? How are you using them? How are you helping to build up the kingdom of God in your life?
