Equip: Growing in Our Calling and Service
Sunday, October 6, 2019
If you call yourself a follower of Jesus, you have been given spiritual gift(s) by the Holy Spirit. Your “job” then is to discover and develop your gift(s) for maximum impact in God’s mission. Some people don’t believe they have a place of ministry in God’s Kingdom, but every Christ-follower has been gifted by the Holy Spirit with spiritual gifts for the purpose of building up the body of Christ, the church. Jesus gave specific gifts, Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher to equip Christ-followers for ministry, to build up the church and mature the church. Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? Are you equipping yourself to grow in your understanding and application of your gifts for the work of ministry and strengthening of the body of Christ? Today we will introduce the equipping gifts and explore how you can equip yourself for ministry in God’s kingdom.
