A brilliantly planned symphony of workers building God’s sanctuary

In Exodus 35 it becomes clear to me that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are more diverse than I initially realised.  Verse 35 says:

He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as craftsmen, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers—all of them master craftsmen and designers.

Whatever gifts we have come from God.  Even if you don’t feel particularly gifted, I can assure you there are some massive gifts within you that God will develop and use as you dedicate your life to him.

I can see new skills developing within me and also skills that I had before being honed more to be used in God’s service.  Without even realising it I now see how the Holy Spirit has been working within me and filling me with more new stuff.  Being a Christian is the most exciting ride you could ever go on, it’s so awesome.

FELLOW WORKERS

We are all fellow workers of the Lord, whatever your gift it has been given from God, all our skills and abilities, our capabilities, God is the architect of it all, we are master craftsmen and designers, God himself has refined us, chosen and anointed with our gifting, a willingness to use those skills for his glory, stirred by God’s goodness, filled with God’s Spirit, called to respond in worship, each gift willingly returned to our maker, the diversity of our abilities creating a brilliantly planned symphony of workers building God’s sanctuary, perfectly placed in time and space to follow the commands of our God who stands victorious, our one and only purpose to glorify his name, to respond with passion when he calls us to action.
