A Note from Pastor Rafe
We have been experiencing the letter to the Ephesians as our themes for worship this summer. We are now in the middle of the series and I pray you have been blessed. Have you been keeping up and reading the short letter as we go along? Worship is not just on Sunday mornings, we prepare for and respond to our worship experiences every day. Try it! Come to worship with the scripture for the day running through your mind. Sing songs of praise as you travel and enter. I bet you won't be late if you do your homework and prepare for worship.
This week the scripture will be Ephesians 4:1-6. This is right in the middle of this letter directed to the church, you and me. Naturally the center of the work holds the core of the theme for the letter: building up the church. Paul wants to build up the strength of the church. It is God's design and purpose to build up the community of faith. The Lord's plan for building up the church is you. We each are given gifts for the benefit of the church. When we use the gifts to honor God the church is built up. When we do not use our gifts it is like a body with a missing part, handicapped.
All too often we make excuses for why we cannot serve. The truth is everyone is needed. Everyone has a gift to share. Each of us has a key role in the building up of the church. What is yours? Don't know your part or are you struggling to find a way to serve that fulfills you? Let me help. Check out: www.ministrymatters.com/spiritualgifts/
This little assessment will help you discover your spiritual gifts. Please know that following Jesus means that God has placed a call on your life. All followers are called to serve.
I know we all want to see the church built up. Well if "we are the church" then the church is built up through us as God calls and equips us to serve. See you Sunday,
