This week’s passage: 1 Corinthians 12
Today we are looking at 1 Corinthians chapter 12. This chapter considers the Spiritual Gifts
that God gives to his people in the Church. Not everyone has the same Spiritual gift, nor the
same method for using that gift. Some are aware they have gifts and others are yet to experience or use their gifts.
As we are experiencing growth and changes in our Church we need to examine ourselves and ask: What is my spiritual gift? How do I use my spiritual gifts for God and the Church?
In this Chapter we also read that although we have different personalities, different backgrounds, different levels of faith we believe in the same God and must work together for the sake of the Kingdom. We need to be united in order for God to continue working through the Golden Bay Baptist Church.
Finally, we read that we all have a role in the Church and that we need to be united. How can we reach people in the community, if we are not united as a Church? It is up to each of us to decide what that role is. Big or small, God loves us all. Anyone who says small things don’t matter, has never slept in a tent at night with a mosquito!
We can pray to God for guidance and ask God: What can I do to show my Love for God? How can I be used by God to tell others about my God and Saviour?
