Uniquely Gifted

Read Mark 14:1 through 16:20

The speaker revealed the financial needs of the crisis pregnancy center in her area. Ella desperately wanted to give to this ministry, but there was simply no money in her tight budget. Frustrated and discouraged she almost missed what the speaker said next. “While our financial needs are great, what we need most is for volunteers to organize and manage our clothing bank.” Ella’s heart quickened at the words. She had time to give and was especially gifted at organization. After the meeting she immediately volunteered her services.

“She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial” (Mark 14:8).

Just as this grateful woman poured out her precious gift on Jesus’ feet, so you can use your gifts and talents to honor Him. God does not ask you to do something you can’t. All people have different situations and abilities, but each is uniquely gifted to participate in the work of God’s Kingdom. Instead of becoming discouraged about what you cannot do, do what you can.

Challenge for Today: Look for ways to use your gifts.

Quicklook: Mark 14:3–9

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
