Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. (I Peter 4:10)
How true this statement is for so many of us. God has given each believer a spiritual gift that He wills us to use for His glory, but we oftentimes don’t use it. We may deny that we actually have a gift or if we do acknowledge it, we may doubt its usefulness to glorify God, and then just bury it. But we must realize that God wants us to be involved with His work. He is so great that by His Holy Spirit He freely distributes gifts to all who are saved – and if He gives a free gift He not only wants us to use it but expects us to.
