Serving: 1 Peter: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: 1 Peter 4:11-13: "For example, if you have a speaking gift, speak as though God were speaking His words through you. If you have the gift of serving, do it passionately with the strength God gives you so that in everything God alone will be glorified through Jesus Christ. For to Him belong the power and the glory forever through all the ages! Amen.
    Beloved friends, if life gets extremely difficult, with many tests, don't be bewildered as though something strong were overwhelming you. Instead, continue to rejoice, for you, in a measure, have shared in the sufferings of the Anointed One so that you can share in the revelation of His glory and celebrate with even greater gladness!


How often do we resist sharing the gifts He has given us with others: whether by ignorance or resistance?

Do we worry that we might try too harshly, or are not sure of the words, or feel inadequate to be a messenger?

Too often we see only barriers and difficulties and our weaknesses. Or we forget to ask Him first to cover our helplessness. And then trust our strength from the gifts given to offer as others did for us.

Lord, please keep our hearts and minds and words centered on Your guidance to speak through us as You call. To know when to act in faith. And to share our gifts of Your grace.

Your thoughts,
