When the verse talks about “working”, it is referring to the effects of the acts of service through which your gifts are used. Our acts of service are part of the Word of God accomplishing its purpose, through the Holy Spirit, who is the giver of these gifts. God deeply desires to involve us in His work!
Our gifts are given “for the common good”, that is, to benefit others. If you feel as though you don’t have “the right gift” or “enough gifts”, I pray you will be encouraged by this truth. Whatever you are doing, whatever your passion, be assured that God wants you to share it. It will be a blessing in ways that you may never know.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this series! I wanted to also share a fun announcement!
Next Thursday (February 1), my friend Anna (from Feminine Adventures) and I will be hosting our first weekly Thrifty Thursday blog-hop. I will also be giving away three copies of The Good Wife’s Guide by Darlene Schacht. We’d love to have you join us with your thrifty tips and encouraging financial stories!
