|Apostle > Prophet > Evangelist > Shepherd > Teacher|
10 God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.
I Peter 4:10-11 NLT
Reflection: Peter is telling us that everything counts! If we use the gifts God has given us to serve and love one another, then everything we do will bring God’s glory into view, revealing Jesus Christ.
So what gifts do you have from God? How are you using them to serve the people of the church and those you’ve been sent to?
