Be the Help

1 Corinthians 12:7—A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.

One of the main purposes of the Church is to help each other. We’re supposed to help each other! When you hear that, what do you think of first—the way that you can be helped, or the way that you can be the help? It’s great to be on the receiving end of help, but if that’s the only thing you’re looking for, you’re missing the point.

Work on seeing yourself as a person who can be the help. What do you bring to the table? What spiritual gifts has God given you that you could be using right now? God doesn’t bring us into His Kingdom so that we can act like victims. There are spiritual gifts in each of us that we can use to be the help.

If you want to receive the help you need, you’ve got to be the help you can be. Discover your own spiritual gifts and use them where God has placed already placed you. Be a person who builds others up. Elevate the rooms you walk into. Be the help!

  1. Do you believe people should be forgiven of past mistakes? Reason I ask is a friend of mine who years ago made a mistake. But hasn’t been forgiven yet by a Pastor of the Church he once attended.

    1. Made “a” mistake? Do you mean a sin? If this friend is Christian he SHOULD KNOW that that pastor is the one who has made the “mistake” by not forgiving this friend! This so-called pastor is not a pastor Spiritually if he has unforgiveness in his heart: your friend, IF he is Christian, has ALREADY been forgiven for his “mistake” by the only One that counts: his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Why would anyone who is a born-again, blood-bought, grace-saved, want to be a slave to another man’s unforgiveness when, according to John 8:36 (and other Scriptures too numerous to mention), he HAS BEEN FREED FROM THAT SLAVERY?

  2. All anyone has to do is commit Philippians 2:3-5 to memory. Once done and continually practiced you will know your Spiritual gifts!
