Spiritual Gifts and Love

🔊Audio Version Here ☞ bit.ly/audio1881

1 Corinthians 13:1 (NKJV) 
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.

Evelyn was disturbed by the things she was hearing about Sister Sharon. But instead of joining others to gossip, she decided to take out a day to pray and fast for her. Through word of knowledge, she knew that the devil was attacking Sharon and seeking to sink her back into the old life of sin that she was delivered from.
When Sharon was restored, she never knew Evelyn's prayer played a great part in this.

Evelyn would have joined the other women in the church to gossip Sharon because Sharon had become cold and disrespectful towards her, but she chose to love Sharon instead. That was why she decided to do something about the matter. The only effective thing she found that she could do at the time was to pray. This she did and her prayers were answered.


Evelyn acted in love toward Sharon by praying for her instead of gossiping and condemning her with the others. That was an act of love.
Even though Evelyn had great spiritual gifts, Sharon was restored because of Evelyn’s love and not because of her spiritual gifts alone.

Spiritual gifts without the fruit of the Spirit [of Love] are untruthful. Gifts without love are nothing but spiritual noise.

Go into today remembering that when your spiritual gift is mingled with love, it becomes very fruitful.
Remember that God rewards fruitfulness, and He gave you gifts to facilitate your fruitfulness.


Prayer: Lord God, please help me walk in love and be more fruitful with my spiritual gifts.
