Saint Mark Daily Lenten Devotional – March 18, 2015
by Kenn William
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11
We are all blessed with various gifts. Gifts come in many forms. Some are more obvious than others. We all have opportunities to use our gifts. Contributing our gifts in service to the Lord allows us to continue to grow individually and as a church.
There can be unity in the diversity of our gifts. It is important to remember that we all have something to offer. All of our contributions, regardless of the form, size or manner, are important. Sharing our various gifts is also a way to witness to those outside the church. We should seek to use the gifts we have in service and gratitude. All of our gifts come from the same God. Rejoice and thank God for our gifts.
Prayer: Lord, help us to pause and rejoice over the blessings you have given to us. May we use the gifts you have bestowed upon us to grow as your children and continue to build your church. Amen.
