1 Peter 4:10

New International Version (NIV)

10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.


There are a few things to note here. First, this verse tells us that we have received gifts from God. We cannot let them be idle, we have to use them for His honor and glory. It might be that we are unaware of the gifts that we have, but we definitely do have them, and we can find out what they are with the revelation from God through His word. Second, it says here that these gifts have a purpose—to serve others. Not ourselves, as some people might have thought, but others. Once we learn what our gift is, we have to use it to be of a blessing to those around us. Third, it says that we have to faithfully administer God’s grace in its various forms.

Grace comes in various forms. Romans 12:6-8 says “We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; If it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach. If it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; If it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.” By the grace of God we have received something powerful to be a blessing to others.

There may be gifts that you have that you are not yet aware of! I urge you to ask God to show you what your spiritual gifts are, and learn about them. Get equipped with knowledge and the wisdom that God provides through His word, prayer, fasting, and activate those gifts! There is a world out there who needs them!

    Amen! Just as our savior Christ came to serve and not to be served, so must we also serve all others with the love we have received from him. God bless you for this great reflection.
