Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/29/12

This week’s scripture is from 1 Peter:

“If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”           (1 Peter 4:11)

God is the one who calls us to minister, but it is only with the skills that He has gifted us that ministry is possible and fruitful. On our own we can do little that will bear fruit or count for Christ, for what can we do without Christ when it is for Him that we minister and from Him that ministry has the holy power to change hearts and lives. It is for His glory and only His glory, for it is in and by His authority that ministry happens, and by His grace that men and women are led to Him and to the Father, unto salvation. Let us be thankful for the gifts of ministry He has gifted us with, and let us use them to His glory.

May the Lord bless you to use the gifts He has given you to minister for His kingdom.
