Spirit Gifts: The Gift of Faith

I Corinthians 12:1-3
Now concerning spiritual gifts, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. You know that when you were pagans, you were enticed and led astray to idols that could not speak. Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says “Let Jesus be cursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy Spirit.
"Jesus, You are LORD!"
That statement alone
is a gift of your Holy Spirit.

Some say such a statement
is a choice I make.
But without your Spirit
working in my life
through those around me
leading me,
teaching me,
guiding me,
there would be no way
on my own to know or claim
"Jesus Christ my Lord!"

Yes, there is choice in my salvation,
it is YOUR choice.
You choose to love me.
You choose to speak to me.
You choose to use others around me.
You choose to die for me.
You choose to rise from the grave for me.
You choose to send your Spirit into my life
so that I can know and embrace your love.

That is a gift!
The Gift of Faith.
Thank you for loving me that much.
Help me choose
to share that kind of love
with others, especially young others.

you are Lord!
Thanks be to God!
