Open Your Gifts

Every Christian is spiritually gifted in one area or another. In an article for Lifeway, Tom Blackaby describes how to use your spiritual gifts in the church. He writes, “Any gift that’s left unopened or is disregarded is useless. God gives us specific spiritual gifts as the primary avenue for Him to use us in His church to bless others. Every Christian should watch for opportunities to minister to others, to use their gifts as a blessing and an encouragement to others. Even the newest Christian can serve others.”

Though we are gifted by God in some areas, we cannot passively expect them to be used or noticed. We must be active and willing to volunteer them to build up the church and for God’s glory.
