Gifts From God

"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." 1 Peter 4:10

Sometimes we can struggle with feeling worthless, but nothing is further from the truth. Do you know that you have a gift that helps others live out the life of Christ? You have a special gift from the Holy Spirit to serve others, and to help them experience the power and presence of God. God gives us the ability, in fact, to minister to His children through one another, and, through the Holy Spirit, this ability is truly limitless. How have you been blessed by the service of another Christ-follower? It may have been a check you received that covered your house payment, a note of encouragement, or maybe a prayer for healing. These gifts are from God Himself through members of the body. God is pouring out His grace to you and through you as you use your gifts.

What do you believe God has given you to meet the needs of others? Pray that God brings somebody to you this week that needs to receive your gift.

Prayer Is The Work

"...pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much." James 5:16

What is prayer? Prayer is merely a person speaking to God about what God has already thought of. Clyde Cranford explained, "The prayer that starts in heaven gets back to heaven." This is the effective prayer that God answers. We are commanded to pray for each other in order for healing to occur, and God says that prayer will be answered as we draw close to Him. Scripture says that we are righteous because Jesus is, and that our prayer is effective because He thought of it.

What does it mean to pray what God desires? How can you pray more effectively for those around you?
