Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (KJV); Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
Years ago, a man of God approached me and ridiculed me over my style of preaching. He advised that it was not good to move about on the pulpit as one speaks and that it was important to maintain one standing position.
He also advised that the sermon must have a proper chronology: introduction, body and conclusion.
Eager to be better, I tried his suggestions and found that I could not conform.
I learned from that experience that it is not proper to try and place a minister within a particular box and confine them to a strict way of doing things.
Being an UNCTIONED minister means that what the Holy Spirit tells you is what you minister. The Holy Spirit does not lead you by the chronology of your sermon notes.
We must appreciate the fact that there are diversities of gifts but the same Spirit, diversities of administrations but the same Lord and diversities of operations but the same God.
The way God made you as a minister might not be the way He made another person.
It is erroneous to think that if you don’t appear or minister like others, you are wrong.
God is not interested in photocopies; He is interested in you the original: Be yourself. Praise Him!

PRAYER: Father in the name of Jesus, I thank you for your Word and for the ministry to which you have called me. I carry a mark of distinction and I am set apart from any minister in my generation. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I can never be a photocopy, I am an original. This understanding causes me to minister in the fullness of the things you have laid out for me. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
