Leadership Devo of the week: 1 Corinthians 12:4-7

“To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”  It is interesting that “gift language” is our focus here.  A “manifestation of the Spirit” is given to each, for the common good, not for the one. “Manifestation” implies God doing something in and through us, not us possessing a gift we decide what to do with.  How would my ministry and church be different, if we saw the manifestation of the Spirit in and through each and everyone in the congregation?  How can I encourage such?  Let your Spirit be seen through your people, O Lord.

    “Elderships need to be spiritual, able to impart and lay hands on people. There is something significant that happens when the eldership lays their hands on leaders and imparts spiritual blessings and anointing to them”. – Frank Damazio

    “Authentic personal spirituality is not intended for the benefit of the individual alone. Its true expression will involve movement outward toward others. Personal intimacy with God fills the individual to overflowing, so that the spillage from the individual’s life results in ministry to others.” – Joy Mosbarger

    “God has an intriguing way of choosing leaders that would not be natural from the world’s point of view” – TJ Addington.
