Beloved: The end of all things is at hand. Therefore be serious and sober-minded so that you will be able to pray. Above all, let your love for one another be intense, because love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you, as if something strange were happening to you. But rejoice to the extent that you share in the sufferings of Christ, so that when his glory is revealed you may also rejoice exultantly.
How do you use the gifts God has given to you? Do you even realize what gifts you have? Have you opened yourself and allowed the Lord to show you your gifts? And when He has revealed them to you, use them wisely and in His service. Your life will be changed forever if you do.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the gifts you have revealed to me. I pray that I use them for your glory and praise. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
The Lord comes to judge the earth.
