Pardon the interruption as I have been recovering from a respiratory infection, but today I am ready to resume the series with Reason Six!
6. You will use your gifts and develop skills you never knew you had to serve others!
The Bible teaches that every believer is given certain talents or "gifts" to benefit others in the family of God. Unfortunately most Christians remain spectators all their lives sitting on the sidelines watching others do the work of the ministry.. Christianity is NOT a spectator sport!. As you share and participate in a Small Group or Sunday School class setting, you´ll discover your own gifting for ministry and gain a confidence & excitement for serving the Lord by serving others. When you are awakened to the needs around you and see that the Lord has equipped you for His work, you'll be ready and willing to step out to serve. . Developing your gifts, talents, and skills in this way will help you at church, at home and at work to be ON MISSION for God,
