God willing, I will continue my series on “Total-Life Stewardship” this Sunday. I am nearing the end. And it is pretty interesting how this series has been growing on me as the weeks have gone by. Sunday’s message will be the next to last in the series. I plan to speak on the stewardship of our (spiritual) gifts.
1 Peter 4:10-11 is the foundational text for this message. It says: “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies – in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (ESV)
My goal is to help the congregation under what scripture teaches about spiritual gifts. Then I want to challenge the church to use their God-given gifts in service to one another. Hopefully, I will be able to challenge the church to make a new commitment to Christian service and show them some practical, next steps they can take to become a better steward of their spiritual gifts.
