1 Peter 4:10-11 (ESV)
“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
We are challenging ourselves this month to give as Christ has given to us—in particular, spiritual gifts. We were not given gifts from our sweet Savior to hoard, but to share them with others. Last week we looked afresh at forgiveness and this week and this week we look at how Christ served us. Can we do the same and sacrificially serve others? How are you stewarding what God has given? Don’t allow the hecticness of this season to keep you from this challenge to re-gift what we have been given. Listen in to this episode as Denise and Angela share on regifting acts of service.
