Building Up: Gifted!

I imagine that nearly every one of us wants to be part of a loving church that is impacting the world for God’s glory. But how does that happen? How does a church become loving and healthy and fruitful for the cause of Christ and his kingdom? Does the “success” of a local church rest on the shoulders of the “up front” people? You know, the people who perform on Sundays – the preacher and the worship team? Well, those people do carry a big responsibility, but interestingly, the Bible says in Ephesians 4:16 that a church’s health and growth happens “as each part does its work.” “Each part” refers to you and me – each of us – all of us!  So, what’s your part? We’ll learn about that in practical ways this Sunday as together we explore what God says to us in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11. Hope to see you then!
