Thought of the Day !!

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.
                                                               1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (NLT)

There are a variety of gifts, and not all of us will have the same gifts.  For instance, I can't draw anything other than those three dimensional box cubes when I'm doodling.  I simply don't have the gift.  But I can type pretty well and fairly fast.  Some, however can't type a lick, and they hunt and peck at the keyboard in front of them.  But put a drawing pencil or paintbrush in their hands…and stand back.  The magic comes pouring out of them.

But whether it's typing or drawing, common sense or book sense…whether it's the gift of healing or the gift of teaching…speaking in tongues or interpreting them…no matter what the gifts are, they come from the same God.  And they're given to us through His same Holy Spirit.  

So seek out your gifts.  Know that they come from your Father in Heaven through the power of the Holy Spirit.  And then use them to glorify the One who gave them to you.

In the love of Christ,
