Do you feel like you’re not worthy for God to use? Do you think that you don’t have anything to offer God? Maybe you think you’re too bad of a person or that you’ve just sinned too much in your past. All you have to do is read the scriptures to know that there are some pretty shady characters that God used in mighty ways. You may be saying “Yes, that’s true, but I just don’t have any skills or a special talent! You may feel like God has given other people special abilities that He uses and somehow has left you out of the gift giving. Think again! God is not impartial! We are told clearly in the Bible that we have received a special gift and it’s to be used! 1 Peter 4:10 states “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms”.
Maybe you’re just on the fence about serving in your local church. Well, get off of it! We are told to use our gifts for a reason. It will help someone else! Remember, all gifts are important to God’s church, the Body. All members of the body of His church are illustrated in a comparative fashion to the human body. They are all needed and equally important for kingdom work. So you feel like a big toe and you want to be something more visible like an eye. To God the big toe is just as important. If you’d had ever lost your big toe you’d realize how much it helps you walk and keep your balance. Whatever gift God has given you, just use it or lose it! We need you to fill that place and we need your help to serve God and make the church function as it should…
Think about this passage: 1 Corinthians 12:7 “To each person the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the benefit of all.
If you want to find out what your spiritual gift is or your unsure ask people you can trust. What am I good at? You can also pray for God’s leading and revelation. Most likely you are already drawn to the area that you should serve in. What have you been equipped to do from your life experience so far? You’ll never regret serving God! Just make the commitment !
