That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Ephesians 3:16-17
Mark and I were married on July 11, 1975 and began discovering significant spiritual details, like both receiving our first bible on September 30, 1962, that indicated our destiny to be life partners. We honeymooned for six years until our first born changed the dynamics of our family. We attended and served in the church where we married. I was impressed with Mark’s faithful attendance and service and followed suit. We were “doers”. We did anything asked of us.
We were saved but we did not have a personal relationship with the Lord. We had no idea of relationship with Jesus and knew nothing of spiritual gifts or what our gifts were. We simply served as unto the Lord and enjoyed Christian fellowship. We avoided “church politics” and arguments among the laity. We had each other and were very fulfilled knowing the Lord would increase our knowledge of Him at the perfect time in His perfect way.
Prayer: Thank you Lord that there is a time and place to simply serve and wait on You to give us wisdom, maturity and reveal specific gifting.
Thought: If you do not know what your spiritual gifts are as in I Corinthians 12; Romans 12; Ephesians 4; I Peter 4, serve in all capacities until you find that area that you are really good in and satisfies a longing to serve God as effectively as possible. You may have many gifts. Don’t limit God’s revelation to you!
