capital “O”

Wednesday June 15th, 1 Corinthians 12: 4 There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they all come from the same Spirit. 5 There are different ways to serve the same Lord, 6 and we can each do different things. Yet the same God works in all of us and helps us in everything we do. 7 The Spirit has given each of us a special way of serving others. As we become aware of the Spirit of God in us, we also become aware of the Spirit of God in others. It is not a matter of the other acknowledging the presence of that spirit in the right words, or in any particular way, it is a matter of the Spirit within us acknowledging the Spirit in others. If we are unable to do that, then we are blocking the work of the spirit and just running on our own steam. The Spirit has given us each a special way of serving others, not some others, not just others like us, not just others that look, think, talk or love, like us, but Others, with a capital “O”. All Others!! No one said following Christ was easy!
