Rich in Knowledge

1 Corinthians 1:5-7. For you were made rich in every way in him, in all your speech and in every kind of knowledge – just as the testimony about Christ has been confirmed among you – so that you do not lack any spiritual gift as you wait for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Rich in speech and knowledge.  How beautiful.  The question is why don’t we see more of this richness?  We are too here that to be rich in speech and knowledge we must use the spiritual gifts God makes available to us when we receive His Son, Jesus, into our hearts, minds and lives.  Our problem is we stand back and admire the gifts but fail to open them.  Sometimes we open them but fail to use them.  After Easter, if God leads, I will write more on the gifts (many are in the archives of this blog) but I encourage you to do your own study on spiritual gifts: what they are, how to identify them and how to use them.  God did make us to be rich in speech and knowledge but we must do our part.
