“Finding My Place”

“Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”

(Romans 12:6-8)

 

Paul taught that every Christian has an integral part to play in the strength and growth of the local church (Eph. 4:16; 1 Cor. 12). Have you ever wondered what your role is at Danville? You have unique abilities that God has given you and He expects you to “use them” (Mt. 25:14ff).

 

Starting in September we will study passages like Romans 12:6-8 in a sermon series designed to help you find your place. No member is unimportant, no task is trivial and no action is meaningless. You will be asked to follow along in the lessons with a pencil and check sheet in hand as we study these various gifts. By the end, you will better understand your strengths and be better equipped to serve the Lord (Eph. 4:11ff).
