Wednesday's Word - Gimme!

Hello All,
Okay, the word of the day is "Gimme" - Say it with me "Gimme." Now shout it out like one of them crazy info-mercial audience people "GIMME!!!!" - Or if you're into grammatical correctness.... "Give me". :)

I don't spend a lot of time focusing on the "things" that are made available to us as believers. I think sometimes it can tend to draw the focus away from The Giver to the gift, or worse still, the givee. I ask the question: If God(Father, Son & Spirit) wasn't in Heaven, would you still wan't to go? This shouldn't be a hard question, but it makes my point.

But there are times when its right and appropriate to realize and walk in the fact that God has given us some very wonderful things.

Here's the Word:

Ephesians 4:11 - 12 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:


1 Corinthians 12: 4- 7 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.


Scripturally, as believers, we realize that we form a cohesive unit called "the body" and every member of the body is gifted in someway to facilitate the purpose of the body. Your purpose is your gift to the body. So what's yours? Something about that "thing" God gave you may not be particularly easy to figure out. You may not see it as noteworthy. But once you do figure it out and get to doing it, it will bless the body. Fact of the matter is; It was God's intention to bless the body when He gave you what He gave you.

Please, my intention is to encourage you. If you don't know what your gift is, try to discover it. If you're not exercising your gift in ministry - you need to be. The body will do better with your 'gifted' input. If the body could say it you plainly- You've got something we need. "Gimme!"


In Him,
Cros
