“Each one, as a good manager of God’s different gifts, must use for the good of others the special gift he has received from God.”
1 Peter 4:10, GNT
Gifts are meant to be opened and used.
What if we bought our friends or families gifts that they never opened?
Actually, that’s where we get re-gifting (which saves me tons of money each year, but I digress).
The point is: God has given us all abilities and talents that can either be put to use for the “good of others” or, they can sit in our garage, unopened and forgotten (spiritually speaking).
Therefore, we live out our fullest potential the moment we finally unwrap, unbox, put batteries in, and USE our gifts to love God and love others.
As you consider joining a service team at New Life Church, know that any team you join, large or small, visible or invisible, is something that honors God and makes a difference in someone else’s life.
Until next time,
Associate Pastor, New Life Church
