Receiving And Using Our Gifts From God
Gifts are Received, not Taken
This lecture investigates the differences between Abram and Lot. How did God treat these two men differently, and why? Consider how Lot took what he thought was his, but did not receive it righteously the way that Abram received his gifts. In a similar way Lucifer wanted the gift of dominion and power in heaven, but he wouldn’t receive the gift on God's terms and he simply tried to take it. This unrighteousness was part of his downfall. We cannot unduly take a gift that only God can give us. Familiarize yourself with the differences between receiving Godly gifts, and unrighteously taking our gifts from God.
