The 12 Days of Christmas - Day 7
Day 7 - On the 7th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
Seven Swans A-swimming The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: 1) prophecy, 2) ministry, 3) teaching, 4) exhortation, 5) giving, 6) leading, and 7) compassion (Romans 12:6-8; cf. 1 Corinthians 12:8-11)
Talk about the gift that keeps giving. God has given you a precious gift that is and will be a wonderful blessing to other people.
When you ask yourself how you can make a difference, this is how He intends for you to do it. There are some who say, "Oh, I can't do that! or "I'll just make a mess of things." Then some say, "I don't have time right now. I'll get to that later." Whatever ones excuse is - it simply isn't true. First of all
If you don't discover what your gift is and begin to use it - it hurts the church! God sent you to your church to do something, what is it?
If God gifted you to do it, that means you have His full support and backing. Don't be afraid of the unknowns, He's got those covered for you.
It may not seem that what you are gifted with fits you - but if you will try you will discover something about yourself you probably didn't know.
God didn't create your or design you to fail. He intends for you to make a difference for Him!
