1 Timothy 4: 14- 16
14 Do not neglect the spiritual gift within you, [that special endowment] which was intentionally bestowed on you [by the Holy Spirit] through prophetic utterance when the [c]elders laid their hands on you [at your ordination]. 15 Practice and work hard on these things; be absorbed in them [completely occupied in your ministry], so that your progress will be evident to all. 16 Pay close attention to yourself [concentrate on your personal development] and to your teaching; persevere in these things [hold to them], for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.
We have a responsibility and we have the ability to carry out the responsibility givin to us through our giftings, and will be held accountable for not doing so! and we can lose the giftings if we dont use the giftings!
Thats pretty heavy stuff right there, lets soak in that for now, have a good weekend.
