“If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever, Amen.”
1 Peter 4:11
As believers, we are all enlisted in God’s army. However, God gives us different callings and places us in different ministries (“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-7). There are some things that you can do, that I cannot. Likewise, there are some things that I can do that you cannot.
The key element that I found in this verse is the middle phrase, “that GOD in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ.” It does not matter what ministry God places us in, or what abilities God gives us, what matters is that we are using our time and talents for His glory!
