But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift.

(Ephesians 4:7)

 

God has given you a spiritual gift. Do you see the word “grace” in today’s verse? It’s the Greek word charis. This is the word that we get our word charismatic from. You have a charismatic gift. Did you know that you’re a charismatic person? Well, you say, “I’m not charismatic.” Don’t think by charismatic that we mean somebody who has a great smile, a firm handshake, and the ability to speak well. We say, “Well, that man is charismatic. He’d make a good politician.” That’s a corruption of the word charismatic. The word charismatic merely means a person who has been gifted by grace.

Now, God has given you a grace gift; therefore, may we not insult God by saying God cannot use us. In the Church, there can be no inferiority; there can be no superiority. We are what we are by the gift of God.


• Do you know your spiritual gift(s)? If not, how might you find out?

• How are you encouraged by the fact that spiritual gifts are given by God and not based on human talent or anything else?
