Gift Receiving

Ephesians 4:10

10 And the same one who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself.

Central Truth

Use the spiritual gift God has given you to carry on his mission.

Devotional

Don't you love to receive a gift that you've wanted for a long time. Growing up, on my birthday, my parents always let me pick out my birthday gift. A few months before my birthday they would ask me to think about what they could give me. I knew that gift was something I would love and want because I got to choose it. It would not be a disappointment or a surprise. I knew exactly what I was getting. It was a gift that I liked, wanted and could use.

I love how God has given us all spiritual gifts that we can use. After Christ left this earth, he gave gifts to those left here on earth to carry on his mission, the church. If God had given me the choice, I think I would have chosen the same gift I have received. It fits me perfectly! I'm comfortable using it.

We are all different, from our personalities to our body shapes. But God chooses a special gift to fit just you! Use that gift he has given you to honor him, share him, and carry on his mission.

 

Scripture Memory | May | Ephesians 4:15

“Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church.”

How does the church grow strong?
