AUGUST: GIFTS (Reimagine Salem Monthly Highlight)
Updated: Sep 8, 2022
What are your God-given gifts? In August we focused on the special gifts that make us unique. These gifts vary from person to person and are showcased through what our talents and strengths are. God shows us when and how we can serve and use these abilities to the fullest in our life.
“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”
- 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
If you’re thinking, “I don’t think I really have any gifts!”... YOU DO! You might not know it yet, but they are there. Have you taken time to really figure out and think about what your God-given gifts are? What are things you LOVE doing? What are the things that make you, YOU? These little details were not by accident. How can you pray, see, and dream about using your gifts to grow within yourself and within our church?
PRAY for God to help you discover and use your unique gifts.
PRAY for God to help you uncover what brings you great joy.
PRAY for our church to be filled with people fully using the gifts that God has given them.
SEE the needs in our church, community, and world.
SEE what brings you joy.
DREAM about where your joy and the world’s needs come together.
DREAM about how we can help others discover their gifts.
DREAM about how God’s will can be done if we are fully utilizing the gifts that God has given us!
