MFM Daily Devotional for 1st April 2022 MESSAGE
1 Corinthians 12: 1 says, “Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.” Verse 4 adds, “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.” These passages of the Bible talk about spiritual gifts. If there are spiritual gifts, there must also exist physical gifts or what you may call natural gifts. All these gifts, whether natural or spiritual, are created and given by the Almighty God.
Natural gifts are different from spiritual gifts. God has blessed us with gifts that came naturally with us from our mother’s womb. We were born with them. So, they are part of us to enable us survive and fulfil our destinies on earth. Some of them include writing, researching, networking, innovating, and so on. It is our responsibility to discover and use our natural gifts to serve God and our fellow men.
1 Peter 4:10 says, “As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” It is when we get born again and baptised with the Holy Spirit that we can receive the gifts of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 12: 1-10).
These spiritual gifts help to highlight our natural gifts and make us more useful in the service of the Lord. A man without the Holy Spirit will manifest his natural gifts according to the flesh because they are not evidence of the move of God’s Spirit or His power.
Many people regard the natural abilities of men as the power or move of the Holy Spirit. This is wrong because natural abilities can never empower a man for God’s work. We know that the apostles couldn’t act until they were endued with power from on High (Acts 2). To be effective for God, we need the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Beloved, I enjoin you to covet the baptism of the Holy Spirit, His fruit and His gifts. As you receive and operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, you will reign in life and fulfil your divine purpose, in the name of Jesus.
