MID-WEEK

Do you know you are a gift to all of us at MCC?

We cannot be all we are destined to be unless you know, develop and use your gifts!

May you know the thrill of God’s design and destiny for your life!

Miss a service? Listen to the Podcast. Come back in 1-2 days if last Sunday’s is not up yet.

Gifted Ones,

I’m excited to see how God will lead us all to seek the greater gifts and to use our gifts more fully for his glory.

I love that the Father, the Son and the Spirit have worked together to give the church all we need to bring the Kingdom of God to the earth.

In Romans 12, God the Father gives the gifts of faith, prophecy, serving, teaching, encouragement, giving, leadership and mercy.

In Ephesians 4, Jesus gives us apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds or pastors, and teachers.

In 1 Corinthians 12, the Holy Spirit gives messages of knowledge, faith, healing, miraculous powers, prophecy, distinguishing between spirits, tongues or languages, and interpretation of tongues.

There is overlap in these lists of gifts, and there are others mentioned elsewhere – but isn’t it a great comfort that we have been blessed by God in these ways?

Let’s be thankful and generously use what God has given to us for his glory!

In the life and love of Jesus with you, Denis
