SHAPE – Part 1

shapeThis week we began to discuss how we will approach service as a church.  The first thing we talked about was Spiritual Gifts.  A spiritual gift is a special attribute given by the Holy Spirit to every member of the Body of Christ to be used to serve the Body.

In his book “The Anointing” by R.T. Kendall, he talks about spiritual gifts and how God can use them to supernaturally do things beyond our normal capabilities.  When we use our gifts under the power of the Holy Spirit and his anointing,  RT says “our gift functions easily.  It comes with ease.  It seems natural. No ‘working it up’ is needed.”

My desire is that we use the spiritual gift that God has given each of us in the church and that the service we do would be easy and joyful.

Your Spiritual Gift is only one part of your SHAPE to serve.  In the next post we will look at your Heart’s desire.
