4th of November 2018

Title: Gifts

Main Text: 1 Cor 12:1-11

Preacher: Pastor James

G - Grow
I - In
F - Fellowship
T - Together

A gift could be given for recognition, acknowledgement, appreciation, adding value, hapiness (to both giver and receiver)
As seen from the main text, the gifts God has bestowed upon us is for the good of ALL (1 cor 12:1-11), i.e. edification of the body of Christ/Growth of The Church.

In life, there are stages of growth and development 
Just as a baby learns to sit, crawl and then walk, likewise in the spiritual, we must GROW (2 Pet 3:18, Eph 4:15-16)
Every step is important, and none can be skipped.

When a manufacturer creates a product, it is for a purpose.
In like manner, God has made you for a purpose (Num 8:19).
The gift God has given you, is to showcase His glory ( Is 43.7)

You may ask, how can I Identify my Gift?
Answer is simple; Ask God (in prayer & fasting; James 5:16, Rev 4:1 ) 
God is our manufacturer, and he is the only one that can truly tell us our purpose in life.

How to Keep the Gift Alive
A river that forgets its source will dry up
God is the giver and source of all gift
do not break your daily conversation/fellowship with God (James 4:8)

Prayer Points 

Help me Lord NOT to neglect the gift you have given to me
