Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them – Romans 12:6.
In our walk with God each of us is given gifts with which we may minister to God’s people.
These gifts are given for a purpose of glorifying our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They are not for us to use as we wish. Some of us have these gifts and are clueless on how to operate them. We end up using them carelessly or harming the very people we are supposed to minister to. We are to go back to the Giver of these gifts in order to find out how we should operate them, so that we can use them in a correct manner which they were meant to be used.
How awesome it is to be doing what we are supposed to do with what we are given. It gives us a sense of responsibility and the assurance that we are in right standing with God. These are the most powerful gifts ever, which when used in the correct manner, lives are changed, and signs, miracles and wonders begin to follow us. Remember the Operator of these gifts and submit them to Him. If our hearts are open to receiving and accepting these gifts, then He guides us on how to operate them, so that we do not go around hurting God’s people or leading them astray. Submit the gift to the Giver and He will guide you in the path of righteousness.
As sons of the kingdom, we also have been given the grace and the power to perform signs, miracles and wonders, by the power of the Holy Ghost. Jesus told us in His word that if we believe we will do greater works than He did. He left us with the Holy Spirit to enable us. Holy Spirit is the operator of these gifts.
