Spiritual Gifts – Use Them

 

Maybe you have just come to know Christ recently. Maybe you have known Christ for quite some time. Either way, we are not called just to know God – we are meant for more than that. God’s plan includes a close daily personal  walk with Him.

  • “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” – Micah 6:8 NIV

To walk with God is not simply attending services once a week or less if you choose – that is being an acquaintance. If you want a close personal relationship with someone, you need to spend time with them. To have a close personal relationship with God, it is the same thing. You need to spend time with Him. Time reading His word, time praying, time listening and time learning from and teaching others from what God has shown you.

 

Get involved

 

  • “Now there are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but it is the same Holy Spirit who is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service in the church, but it is the same Lord we are serving. There are different ways God works in our lives, but it is the same God who does the work through all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us as a means of helping the entire church.”  – 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 NLT

 

We all have gifts – even when we think we don’t. God has given them to us for a reason —– to use them for Him. The only question left is – will you use yours?

Get involved in your local church and in doing so you may be able to help with God’s global church as well. McConnell is a small community, but here at Grace there are still opportunities galore for you to use the gifts God has given you.
