Use Your Gift

August 26

“Now a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria,
an eloquent man and mighty in the Scriptures,
came to Ephesus.
This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord,
and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately
the things of the Lord…”
Acts 18:24-25

“…an eloquent man …fervent in Spirit…”

This man was gifted in eloquence and he spoke in public fervently. Could you do that? Do you shudder at even the thought of preaching the Gospel publicly? When you were in school, were you the one who buried your head whenever the teacher was looking for someone to stand and read?

The point is that to speak eloquently in public is a gift of God. Don’t shudder when you read about it. Instead, look into yourself and determine what YOUR gift is, and then do it fervently unto the Lord, with all your heart.

You will never be judged for not having done someone else’s gift. But it will be required of you whether you used YOUR gift to the fullest in the service of the One who gave it to you.
