You Never Know.....

Follow up from this morning's post.... This has really been on my mind lately. Sometimes we miss opportunities that might would help others turn their life around, to help point them in the right direction to their Eternal Destination. "Don't take it for granted everyone has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour!" I know it took someone close to me, in my life to encourage me by sharing God's every chance they got. If it wasn't for "My Brother" sharing God's Word with me, only God knows which way I would be heading today. We never know who we might touch...turn around, get to thinking, wake up, etc. "with God's help" by using whatever gift God has given us to share His Word with others-whether it's through our actions, our words, financially, etc. We need to ask God to show us and help us to develop and use whatever His Will may be. There are so many of need! God wants all his people to participate in worship. He also wants his people to avoid envying the gifts of others...but to instead be content. You may not be a master musician, a prophet, or a teacher...but God appreciates whatever you have to offer. Develop your special gifts so you can offer them in service to God. Romans 12:3-8 NIV For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. 1 Corinthians 12:29-31 NIV Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues ? Do all interpret? Now eagerly desire the greater gifts. And yet I will show you the most excellent way.
