The lies Satan spoke to church members in the 1st century church are the same lies he speaks today: “You are nothing!” or “You are everything.”
He either wants us to despair because we don’t have the gifts that others have, or he wants us to be puffed up with pride.
The Apostle Paul in this series reminds us that each of us is “fully equipped” to carry out the ministry that God is calling us personally to do, and that each of us is an important part of God’s plan to fully equip our congregation to fulfill its mission.
|September 11||Spiritual Gifts 101||1 Corinthians 12:1-11|
|God’s Spirit gives a variety of spiritual gifts. These gifts are given for the building up of Christ’s church and the growth and encouragement of its members. These gifts all come from the same Spirit, they are doled out just as God would have them distributed, and they are all given for the common good.|
|September 18||Body Building||1 Corinthians 12:12-31|
|The Holy Spirit deals out spiritual gifts just as they are needed for the well-being and the building up of Christ’s church. Each of these gifts is important to the work of the church. That means that every person and every gift is essential to carrying out the mission of the church. Nobody is a nobody in God’s church.|
|September 25||Hero or Zero||1 Corinthians 13|
|The key for blessing all relationships inside and outside the church is unconditional, self-sacrificing love. Without this kind of love, no matter what we attain or accomplish, we are nothing and we gain nothing.|
|October 2||A Servant Heart||1 Corinthians 14|
|The gifts and abilities we have can be put to use for all kinds of different goals, but the ultimate goal is to use what God has given us to bless, encourage, support, and build up others.|
