Topic: Spiritual Specialisation [Monday 11, September 2017]

Memorise: “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” - Romans 12:3

Read: 1 Corinthians 12:4-12

4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.

5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.

7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

Bible In One Year: Daniel 1-3. Hymn: Sing Hymn 12

MESSAGE:

God in His infinite wisdom specifically created the universe and everything in it with diversity in His mind. Consequently, the difference between people, their special gifts, needs and characters is obvious all through creation. Now the Bible teaches that the different gifts in the lives of individuals in the Body of Christ are specifically designed to be used for the benefit of all.

As a teenager, you sometimes tend to feel proud and stingy with whatever is yours. However, we are encouraged not to personalize God's gifts in our lives, but rather to recognize that we are incomplete in ourselves and we need cooperation and fellowship with others in the body of Christ to function as a complete whole. One person operates in the word of knowledge; one in the gifts of healing, and yet another in the working of miracles and prophecy. They should cooperate with each other with the understanding that one and the same Spirit is at work in each individual to accomplish the ultimate purpose of God.

Prayer Point: Father, please give me the unction to function with total humility and submission in Jesus' Name.
