using our gifts...

April 30, 2012

1 Timothy 4:13-14

V 14 Do not neglect the gift you have…

Of course Paul was speaking directly to Timothy he; he wanted to remind Timothy of what God had equipped him to accomplish. However, every believer has a spiritual gift. It’s given to us at salvation. What is it? Well, it’s different in every person, but they are all from God. I have heard many over the years say that they don’t have a spiritual gift; when in actuality they do they just don’t know what it is yet. In some cases, maybe they don’t want to know, because spiritual gifts are given to us so that we can work. They are given to us so that we can help our church family and our brothers and sisters in Christ. Paul is very clear here, “Do not neglect the gift you have…” Perhaps we need to examine ourselves to see if we have been neglectful.
