August Devotions

August is a month when most people think about vacations, laying by the pool, and generally avoiding the heat and work.  Even God rested on the seventh day of creation, so no one can fault us for taking a break now and then.

When you do get back to work you’ll find that God has gifted each of us specifically to do His work.  Spiritual gifts are a sticky subject in a number of churches but we’re not talking about controversial ones like speaking in tongues and miracles.

Instead we will look at gifts like that of service, teaching, and faith which are all identified by Paul in the New Testament.  We’ll also look at some gifts like that of craftsmanship and music that appear in the Old Testament as well.
