Treasure Chests were meant to be opened.
Today as I walked through the treasure rooms of our Lord, I came across Scripture found in 1 Peter 4-5. I found words of God’s grace, suffering, living for God, and advice for Elders and young men.
I sat down near the treasure box marked 1 Peter 4:10-11:
1 Peter 4:10-11 – 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. (NLT)
How are we to use these spiritual gifts? We are to use them well in order to serve one another. These gifts were not meant to stay within the treasure chest – they were meant to unfold and take out and start using. Where there is freedom to use our gifts of the Spirit, there will be love and there will be unity and there will be glory raised up to our Creator.
This is one of the many ways that we can live for God each day. It is a way to bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to Him today and forever.
Today, make it all about Him.
My Song: Enjoy! A little of country today! Always remember:
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for the freedom that I have to walk in Your treasure rooms and the privilege of unfolding Your Word. Father, there are so many hidden treasures in Your Word. Help me – help others to not abuse nor misuse Your Words. May we seek Your treasures in order to bring glory to Your name forever and ever. Father, You have given us gifts to serve one another – may we use them wisely. Father, thank you for drawing me to your heart. Thank you for the precious treasures that I found today. I ask this in Jesus Christ’s name, amen.
