As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
This is a big responsibility because it calls on all of us, not just professionals, to really participate in God’s work in the church. It says that ministering to one another through our gifts is good stewardship, and by extension we can assume that NOT using it is BAD stewardship. It also explains that the ultimate purpose in us sharing our gifts with one another is the glory of God, to whom glory belongs!
- What are your gifts?
- Are you using them to minister to one another?
