The Gifts of FATHER

Romans 6:22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

None of us deserved eternal life in Christ for it was a gift from Our Heavenly Father.  So the question becomes, “What are you doing with your gift?”  Are you furthering the Kingdom and its business or are you spending the day consuming it for yourself?  Have you been duped into having all your focus on some future event or are you making the best of each day?

Jesus spent 3 1/2 years spreading the Good News and ministering life to all those ready to receive.  The disciples took the same message to the uttermost parts of the known world as well.  We all can do the same as we walk out our gifts and callings.  A kind word to a stranger could be the one spark that was needed to change his or her life.  The Holy Spirit was also given as a gift as Peter told the crowd:

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

How many gifts have you received that end up in the corner of the closet never to be used?  FATHER gave us a gift greater than anything man can create yet many of us have left this particular gift dormant.  Set yourself to purpose to walk by THE SPIRIT from this day forward.  Quiet your soul and walk by THE SPIRIT.  Set your mind to be a servant which is what it was designed to do, not create problems to be solved.  Paul wrote in Romans 8:

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.

13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.

15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,

17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

You have been given the gift of eternal life, you have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit, and now it is time to actively walk in these gifts for FATHER did not give them to us to be set aside and collect us.  We have the choice to purpose to walk and be led by THE SPIRIT.  The more you focus and move forward in this area, the more sensitive to THE SPIRIT you will become.  You will see fruit come forth as you walk along this path guided by Love.  It is time for you to exercise your faith in the fact that FATHER Loved you and I so much that HE gave us both gifts out of HIS Divine Intent of Love.

At first you may stumble a few times but do not give up.  As you continue to walk and be led by THE SPIRIT, your sensitivity will increase by use.  Don’t let circumstance snuff out the light you are called to be in this world moving toward gross darkness.  The darker the surroundings, the brighter your light.  Let your gift shine before men for they are in desperate need to be guided out of darkness whether they realize it or not.
