- 1 Peter 1:10 – 12
- 1 Peter 4:10 – 11
- It is by God’s grace not our initiative.
- We are being sent by the Holy Spirit.
- We are to speak as if we were speaking the utterances of God.
Somehow this mix of passages encouraged me. I am not sure that understanding this will keep all the butterflies in my stomach at bay, but I am both comforted and challenged that when the opportunity to share Christ is there, God’s grace and the Holy Spirit have placed me there to speak “the utterances of God.” I pray for that grace to overwhelm me.
