God’s Role for You
1 Corinthians 12:4-7
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
In God’s Church, there are many people from different cultures, different backgrounds and different skills and abilities. Within a community of believers, each person has the ability to assist and help each other. This passage talks about different kinds of gifts. God has given each and every one of us a gift. It could be one of many gifts used to help, encourage, counsel, serve, or teach others within God’s Church.
Within our community, the fellowship is the place God designed for us to discover, develop and use our gifts. These gifts and abilities can also be used outside the congregation as well to impact your neighbourhood, family or the entire city. God works through each and every one of us and we each have a contribution to make. Sometimes, we may not have the confidence to be able to do something, but God can give us the courage to step out on faith and accomplish so much.
