Wednesday Word: 1 Peter 4:10-11

"GOD HAS GIVEN each of you a gift FROM HIS GREAT VARIETY of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? DO IT WITH ALL THE STRENGTH AND ENERGY THAT GOD SUPPLIES. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen." 

-1 Pet. 4:10-11 NLT (Emphasis my own)

Among all of the things these verses say to us I want to draw our attention to what I bolded. May we never forget that all of the things we do, all of the things we get, all of our gifts, strengths, abilities, etc... it is God who has supplied them and God who has supplied the strength and energy to continue to live.

All is grace.
All is grace.

This brings great glory to God, when He gets the glory for all we do. Because it really is all due to Him.

All that God is, He is, when He gets the glory of being the benefactor of grace, never is He a beneficiary of service.
