The Truth is according to 1 Corinthians 12:7 (MSG) Each person is given something to do that shows who God is.
The Lord gives assignments to people and to each according to one's unique abilities. As the Lord calls us He also equips us.
The Spirit of Christ has given to each christian a special way of serving others.
You may be the behind the scenes type of person and you know what? That's great...God needs behind the scenes people.
You may can bake really well! Praise the Lord! He needs bakers!
You may can organize well. Well thank you Jesus because a lot of folks have no clue about organizational skills! He needs you!
You may have the gift of being laid back and going with the flow type of spirit. Well see here, God needs you for people like me that are Hyper!
You may have a knack for decorating. He needs you!
You may do well with simply making phone calls to others for outreach purposes. GET ON THE PHONE!
The list can go on and on and on can't it? If we are born again Christians we cannot continue to use the line: NOT BEING ABLE TO SERVE BECAUSE WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING!
That is a lie straight from Satan! Why not keep you from serving? If He can keep you thinking that you have no gifts or talents then he has pretty much won hasn't he? Satan loves to keep us
(SELF-DEPRECATING) Ladies, we need to get over this. Who are we going to believe? Satan or God?
And then there is the opposite! It kind of goes like this: "I can't get involved in that ministry because I wind up doing it all!
Now...let's take the paper off the candy girls and be honest.
And I can do this because I've said it! So I am just being honest and real with you!
WE DON'T HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING! WE ARE NOT GOD'S SOLUTION TO SOCIETY! WE ARE A SOLUTION IN SOCIETY! Read that again real slow!
According to the Word of God our goal is to stay within the boundaries of God's plan for us. Read: 2 Cor. 10:13.
We need to clarify what our contribution is for the service of the Lord.
So let's quit believing the lies of Satan and ask God this question. "What can I do to serve you? Where, what and how? I promise if you do that with a sincere heart that He will show you.
I love what Jeremiah 33:3 says...one of my favorite scriptures:
"Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things you did not know".! WOW! What a promise!
