Whoever speaks, let him speak, as it were, the utterances of God; whoever serves, let him do so as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to Whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (I Peter 4:11, NAS)
We often think of praise and worship taking place when we are singing or when we are in church. But according to this passage, we give praise to God when we are exercising our spiritual gifts.
Imagine that you have the gift of helps. You have prepared a meal for someone in need and are ready to deliver it. Your spouse says, “Honey, where are you going?” Would you say, “I’m going to worship the Lord?”
Or if your gift is administration and you are organizing a church function, do you view that as worship? God does! Are you worshipping God through the use of your spiritual gifts?
