Unwrapping Your Gift #4 of 4

January 9, 2008
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.

Years ago we heard, "These are the times that try men's souls." As conflict swirls around us, those times have returned.

Today, you will hear how to face your fears, and overcome them.

The war that never seems to end…terror threats…political intrigue…an uncertain economy…indeed, many are fearful. We cannot control our circumstances, but we can find refuge in the One who does control them. As we begin what for many is an uncertain New Year, listen to a message designed to build genuine confidence in all those who live in fear.

Your church needs you...it needs you out on life's racetrack, running alongside the other members to get the job done together. The challenge for the new year is "get involved." That is what Esther did at a crucial point in the history of the Jewish people. She got involved even at great personal risk, as must we to face the daunting challenges of 2008.

Most of our choices do not affect world history. But sometimes, God puts us in situations where they can, and do. To save her people from extinction, Esther faced the risk of execution to beg the king of Persia to rescind a royal edict. She did not try to "pass the buck." She knew that at that key moment, "the buck stopped here."

At year-end, we are all conscious of passing time. We wish we had more, but the sand keeps running through the hourglass. At crucial times, great leaders arise, often from common roots. They find themselves at the vortexes of history, and are called upon to make momentous choices. Today we learn about one such leader, a woman named Esther.

So some of those presents were not quite right? Hey, no problem! It is the day after Christmas, let us all head to the mall.
