We are shaped to serve God.  Just as nature shows us that every animal has a purpose, each person has a purpose. 

  • God is the architect of the universe.  Each of us is created by God.  Eph. 2:10   
  • God expects us to perform the good works he has set for us. Isaiah 43:21 We are to praise God. Job 10:8, Psalms 139:13-16
  • God made us beautifully and wonderfully.  Everything that happens in our life is used by God to shape us for his glory. 
  • We must pray about what our gifts and talents.  We also can learn about our talents by interacting with other Christians.  Try something different to encourage others.1 Cor. 12:4-14

Spiritual gifts

  • God decides what gift you receive. 
  • No one gets all the gifts, but everyone gets at least one. 
  • The gifts are to help others not just for you.
  • We need to appreciate all people’s gifts as we work together in the church.
  • If you don’t use your gifts someone else suffers. 
  • If we don’t use our gifts we can become resentful and envious of others.  We can also resent others who don’t share our passion for our service.

 

You have a unique heart for God.  Don’t ignore your special interests in your service to God.  This will motivate you in your service.

Deut. 11:13
