Leadership

S in Shape

Do you know you have a supernatural ability? Yes! If you are a child of God, you have a supernatural skill.

When you gave your life to Christ not only did you receive THE holy Spirit, but God gave you a very special gift. This special treat is to bring glory to God in the body of Christ. Meaning? God created you to make Him famous and be an active part of a Bible teaching church. How? Put your spiritual gift to work.

God purposed you to do what only you can do where He put you. To accomplish this purpose, God equipped you. A quarterback is given a ball. A drummer has sticks. An artist uses paintbrushes. You have a spiritual gift. Use this ability to point other people to Jesus and build the body of Christ, the church.  How? Read carefully. Take a test.

Romans 12

Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly.

Take this test.

After passing with flying colors, text your accountability friend. Share your test results. Discuss ways to use it. Ask God to show you how He wants you to use your gift to carry out His plans. Thank Him for your supernatural ability!
