DAVID JEREMIAH’S TURNING POINT FEBRUARY 6TH, 2024
What are spiritual gifts, you ask? They are simply aspects of the work of Jesus Christ that the Holy Spirit wants to empower you to do. Henry Blackaby wrote, “Everyone who believes God’s good news of salvation and commits his life to Jesus Christ will receive the same Holy Spirit who indwelt the Son of God…. The Holy Spirit is the gift. He Himself is the indispensable gift of God to your life.”1
When the apostle Paul told us to “work out” our salvation with “fear and trembling” in Philippians 2:12, he was thinking, in part, of our spiritual gifts. The Holy Spirit works into us the life of Jesus Christ, and we need to work out what the Spirit is working into us. How important to do our best to use our gifts actively and diligently for the glory of God.
How does the Lord want to use you today? Thank Him in advance as you work out your spiritual gifts for His glory.
If you do not walk in the Spirit, you do not have a spiritual gift. Apart from the Spirit, whatever “gifts” we display can only be our natural talents, drawing attention to self.
