And many followed him. “John didn’t perform miraculous signs,” they remarked to one another, “but everything he said about this man has come true.”
–John 10:41 NLT
Do you question what spiritual gifts God has given you? Maybe you look at others, see their gifts, and begin to doubt yourself.
God uses everyone who belongs to Him. You are called to fulfill a purpose here on earth. You may not be a pastor, Bible teacher, or missionary, but you can be a voice—a voice that tells others about Christ.
God does not see you the way you may see yourself. Look at John the Baptist. He never performed a miracle yet Jesus said in Luke 7:28 (NIV), “I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John ….” John the Baptist was content to be a voice pointing others toward Christ.
You have a mission that is different from others. Whatever you do on a daily basis is not insignificant. You do have a special gift—one that is different from everyone else’s. Your life is an example that others see.
People desperately need a Savior. There is no greater gift to have than a voice to open hearts to the love of Christ.
- Trust that the Lord will be faithful and will guide you in what He has called you to do.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to embolden you to use your spiritual gift as a voice that points to Christ.
