This morning (09/17) I attended a conference online. One of the issues that so many church leaders are facing is how to continue ministry during a pandemic that has no foreseeable end in sight. We want to think we will eventually get over this, but when? In the meantime, how do we continue to minister effectively? One of the conference speakers made an important comment. He said, “The limit of our ministry will depend on the level of our creativity.”
We could cry and moan and complain about how bad things are or how much we wish things were like they used to be. But that is not what overcomers do! Overcomers find ways to overcome, and that is what we must do as Christ’s followers, and as members of His church! So here is my word of encouragement to you which comes straight from the WORD—1 Peter 4:10-11,
As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen
Pray! Ask God to show you how He has gifted you. Ask Him to show you how He wants to use You to be the solution! I would be interested to hear what the Lord shows you. Would you please email me to let me know? If you are interested in finding out how to discover your spiritual gifts we have a tool that can help you. Just request it and we will help you.
