Not Lacking In Any Gift…
We are children of God. The followers of Jesus Christ have been given the greatest gift anyone could ever receive. It was freely given and we, as Ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven should freely give. The gift of mercy, grace and salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ, is not something we earned or that we even deserve, it just is. We should share these gifts with all we come in contact. We should pass them along and teach others about these gifts that away each person on earth. No one is exempt. No one can be denied.
I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are not lacking in any gift, awaiting eagerly the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. ~1 Corinthians 1:4-9 NASB95
It is only when we turn away from God, sin, that we become separated from God and our lives begin to run on self will instead of God’s will. When we are asking for His direction, when we are seeking His grace and when we are knocking upon the door of Christ’ wisdom our lives are place in His hands. We are no longer wandering around in a feeble attempt to justify our actions. Our actions will show the glory of God as our hands will be used by our Father for His purpose. The words that proceed from our tongue will His Words, not ours. Our voice will be heard as the glorification of God and not boasting of our works.
We serve God and Jesus Christ serves us with Comfort and Counsel provided by the Holy Spirit. We clean our side of the sidewalk and God provides for our daily needs. We sing His praises and give all glory to God so that others may come to know our Lord and Savior through his followers and believers.
Either the Scripture is the divine Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of Him, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
