My church is joining in ministry with another church merging our resources to make a greater impact on the community with the message of Christ. I’m excited about all the possibilities and discovering the gifts of God’s people to be used for the mission.
We may be merging in ministry officially on paper, but we were already one as the body of Christ, as we are one with all people of God. Each person is uniquely designed by God to be a part of the ministry. If the individual decides not to use their gift for God, that makes a difference on the body as a whole. It’s like choosing not to use our right arm as a working part of our body. It would make a huge difference on how we journey through our day.
It’s exciting to discover one’s gifts and think about how God made us for such a time as this. Our story is God’s story. It’s continually being written in this life with an ending being left wide open for the best that is yet to come.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the gifts that you have given me in this life to serve you. I look forward to joining brothers and sisters in the mission and pray for clear direction on what you would have me do. Amen
