Your mission … if you choose to accept it is ….

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ. – 1 Corinthians 12:12

 

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

 

Faith Tip: You have a gift for God. If you don’t know what it is, seek God to find out. Try taking a spiritual gift assessment and you may be surprised what you discover.

 

One thought on “Your mission … if you choose to accept it is ….

  1. Yet we sinned against God, disobeying him because of our prideful desire to equal to him. We were not satisfied with fellowship with the King as his prince and princess. We wanted to be king and queen ourselves. Our sin was not some minor peccadillo, something a holy God could simply ignore, but rather outright rebellion against his reign. The result of sin was pervasive brokenness, in our relationship with God, with each other, and with creation itself (Gen 3). We shattered the gift of divine fellowship and the perfection of God’s world.
