Every Christian has an important role to perform in God’s house of worship.First, As a believer in Christ, we, by faith, have received the Holy Spirit which
lives within us. Furthermore, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation, in other words, we are to tell our family members and friends about the gospel of Christ. Paul calls us Ambassadors for Christ (2-Cor.5:18,20).
Secondly, every Christian is a part of the body of Christ. Regardless if you are the eye, or the foot, or ear, or even the noise, you are a valuable part of the body of Christ (1-Cor.12:14-27). Like the physical
body, which cannot function properly without all of its body parts being present, likewise, the Church cannot function when a member is absent from the service.
Thirdly, every member of the
Church has been given a different gift by God for the edifying of one another, and also the Church (Eph.4:12).
Jesus has personally given spiritual gifts to the members of the Church, but not everyone
may possess the same gift. Each gift is for the profit of all who believes in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (1-Cor.12:4-7).
When Christians use their gift, it is an indication that God exists and is present
during the service. Here is a list of the gifts God may have given to some in the Church:
1) To one is given the word of wisdom.
2) To another the word of knowledge.
3) To another faith
4) To another gifts of healing
5) To another the working of miracles
6) to another prophecy
7) to another discerning of spirits
8) Yet to another different kinds of tongues
9) To another the interpretation of tongues
All these precious gifts are given to the Church so we can use them to bless one another.
(1-Cor.12:1-31). To discover
your gift pray and ask the Lord to revel the gift He has given you or
email the pastor at email@example.com
The apostle Paul said although we may possess all the
gifts and speak with tongues of angels and have all knowledge and all wisdom yet, love is greater than all of these gifts.
Why is love the second greatest Commandment
1) Love is kind
2) Love does not envy
3) Love is not puffed up with pride
4) Love does not
5) Love does not seek its own
6) Love is not provoked
7) Love thinks no evil
8) Love does no harm to a neighbor
The Bible teaches Christians to owe no one anything except to love one another, for this is the fulfillment
of the law (Rom.13:1-14).
