Faith has been given to us as a body.
- We Fit in the body.
- We Form the body.
- We Function in the body.
Our function in the body is the scope of today’s sermon.
There are several places where gifts are outlined in the bible.
- Ephesians 4 – Ministry Gifts
- 1 Corinthians 12 – Manifestational Gifts
- Romans 12 – Motivational Gifts
Everyone Has Been Given A Gift – Romans 12:6
- Treat your gift right.
- Esteem your gift.
- Celebrate your gift.
Everyone’s Gift Is Different – Romans 12:6
- Because my gift is unique, it doesn’t make sense to compare.
Your Gift’s Differences Are Based On His Grace On Your Life
God has graced you to do what you do.
Everyone Must Use Their Gift
“If you wait until everything is perfect, you will never use your gift.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
“Your gift is not for show, it is for service.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
Take Time To Discover Your Gift
One way to do this is to ask other people, “What am I good at?”
Develop Your Gift
God will give you the raw materials, but it’s up to you to make it.
Deploy Your Gift
God will give you opportunities once your gift is developed.
“Opportunities come for the prepared.” – Pastor Billy Johnson
