Using My Gifts Is An Act Of Worship
In summary of John 15:8 it says, “When you give much fruit, My Father is honored. This shows you are My followers.”
When you produce much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified.
What this means to me:
When I am following Jesus, one of his true disciples, I will produce much fruit. This bring glory to God. One way of doing this is to use the gifts that God has given me (small group leadership and mentoring.) When I do this is it an act of worship. God smiles when I use the gifts that he’s given you. The Bible says, “When you produce much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified” (John 15:8a AMP). When I use my gifts correctly, God gets the glory. And I certainly can’t please God with gifts I don’t have. God doesn’t expect me to be talented or gifted at everything. He just wants me to use what he’s given me. The greatest feeling in the world I can get will come from using my gifts for God’s purpose. I need to continue to develop the spiritual gifts that I have so that I can enjoy my life and bring glory to God. In summary, I need to use my gifts to serve. I should never hold back. No matter how busy I am, I need to take time to use what he has gifted me for.
