2 Chronicles 26:1-23; Ezekiel 43:1-27; John 19:17-42

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Ephesians 4:7
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:12

If the Lord’s only purpose in saving us was to make us ready for heaven, He would have taken us home already. But He has a greater purpose for the child of God. Every believer has been given a spiritual gift. The focus of the gift is the building up of others in the body of Christ. Do you see a believer struggling? Ask yourself how can my gift be a blessing to that person? Then just do it! —Sid Halsband

Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord, by the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope, and my will be lost in Thine. —Fanny J. Crosby
