Finding Your Priorities #2 of 3

January 16, 2008
As Christians, we are commanded to present our bodies as living sacrifices acceptable to God. This is not easy to do. The pressure is on from within and without for us to do anything but be living sacrifices....in other words, to get off the altar and "do our own thing." Today: some practical help on how to get back on the altar, and stay there.

Each of us must contend with choices every day...choices on using our time, talents, and treasure, and on setting priorities. As members of the body of Christ we have a mission to fulfill, and a disciplined use of our resources is key to getting God's work done. Today: we will look at how to determine our priorities, and then, how to live by them.

The word diversity scares some people. They would rather spend time with those of like mind than embrace those they consider "different." In the body of Christ, there is great diversity. And the mature Christian enjoys the gifts of every member of the body, since each believer has a unique contribution to make to the growth of Christ's kingdom on earth.

For some reason, we tend to think that God is somewhere "up there" looking down on His children to see how they are doing. But the New Testament paints a different picture - one in which God sees believers as part of Christ's body the church - in a union with Him as intimate as the connection between the parts of a human body. As Christians running the race of life, we do not run alone...we share the actual life of God Himself.

There is something inside each of us that makes us want to belong...to be connected with others in something bigger than ourselves. As Christians running the race of life, we are blessed to be a part of an invisible assembly...the body of Christ worldwide that transcends denominational barriers. Today, we will explore why it is so vital that we understand the body of Christ and our part in it.

No self-respecting kid would leave a Christmas present unwrapped, and no believer should leave his or her spiritual gift unwrapped. Each Christian has been entrusted with a unique spiritual capability, and without its exercise, the body of Christ is incomplete. Today: we will learn some details on the three different kinds of gifts the Spirit bestows.

The employees of a well-run company know their abilities as well as the roles they play in making that company profitable. They know that "doing your own thing" is the last way to succeed in any group endeavor. In the body of Christ, believers need each other in the common task of ministry...all serving by using their unique spiritual gifts. Today, we will learn what those gifts are all about.

When you take apart an old alarm clock you will see an amazing array of gears all working together to make sure you wake up on time. If any gear gets out of place, the whole thing grinds to a halt. It is similar in the local church…if people are not serving where God wants them to serve, the whole ministry is shortchanged. Today, we will learn what spiritual gifts are, and why it is so vital that we find which gift we have.

Ever feel like a square peg in a round hole? Try as you might, you do not seem to fit in with others. Happily, there is a solution. God has a place of service for every Christian, and a spiritual gift every Christian can use to benefit others in that place of service. If we fail to use our gifts, the body of Christ suffers. Today, we will explore how to identify our gifts, and how to put them to work.

Many long for the good old days...days without terror attacks and days when jobs were secure...but those days are gone. There is a way to handle our fears and run life's race in victory. Today, some final lessons from Psalm 27 will help us understand that God's hands are stronger than the hands of wicked men, and that we can be secure even though we face calamity.

Years ago we heard, "These are the times that try men's souls." As conflict swirls around us, those times have returned. Our fears are very real, but there is a way to handle those fears without collapsing into despair. We can survive terror threats and economic uncertainty if we remember who holds the future. Today, you will hear how to face your fears, and overcome them.
