Yes. Still is what I am. Not traveling. Taking care of two households…yes I said two.
I wanted to touch a bit on a conversation I had today. My church is working on a spiritual gifts seminar. We are now meeting in small groups to discuss the spiritual gifts of the individuals of that group. One of our group said, “I didn’t know you had that gift. Imagine what church would be like if everyone knew how others were gifted.”
Indeed. A crucial statement. The Church would run somewhat smoothly if we were aware of each other and how God works in our lives. How is God using us as individuals to push the Church on to further His Kingdom and prepare for His coming in glory?
Another crucial thought here: will we recognize the gifts of individuals and be open to how the Spirit is working in and through them? Will we listen to the people who have the gift of discernment when they sense something amiss? Will we trust those with the gift of craftmanship to make help the worship services to be more meaningful? Will we look beyond skills and employ the gifts? Will those with the gifts invite those with corresponding skills to help?
Until He takes me outtahere, I will continue to consider the process of studying not just my spiritual gifts but also those of others.
Let me know your thoughts….
