One of the weaknesses I have had in my walk with Christ is overly admiring other servants of God. One thing we must remember is that it’s Christ’s power and wisdom that works through people, it’s not their own!
For instance do you know someone who can pray for the sick and they are healed? It is not them, it is Jesus! Do you see someone who understands the Bible very well? It is Christ’s Holy Spirit who gives them understanding! Did you hear a sermon/ message that encouraged you in a hard time? It is Jesus who gave that person the sermon/message! Christ gives those gifts/abilities to people in order to help other believers. Therefore, when God is using someone in our lives, let us not give glory/admiration to that person but to Jesus Who is using them!
God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.
