Enriching the Family

Description

Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal your spiritual gift so you can use it to enrich the family!

We were all baptized by one Spirit into one body...and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. (1 Corinthians 12:13, NIV)

When you and I received the Holy Spirit into our lives, we became members of the larger body of Christ that includes other believers. Perhaps without realizing it, at the moment of conversion, we became part of the family of God; Jesus is the Head, and other believers are our brothers and sisters. Paul describes this new identity as being “baptized by one Spirit into one body.” But the new privilege of belonging to God’s family brings with it new responsibilities to care for and build up the other family members. For that purpose, the Holy Spirit gives us each gifts that enable us to be contributing family members. These gifts are not natural talents although they can enhance what we have developed ourselves. These gifts are supernatural and only come from the Spirit at His discretion. (1 Cor. 12:11)

What is your spiritual gift? Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what it is so you can use it to enrich the family!
