 Listen to the message

January 17th 2016

 

 

 

Intro – Our text continues from last Sunday. There we were told to “present” ourselves to God. God has given each one of us special gifts to use when we present ourselves to Him.  Use your gift.

 

 

 

I. Use your gift.  1Peter 4:10

 

A.  You do have a gift.  1Cor.7:7, 1Cor.12:7, 11

 

B.  Activate the gift that is in you.  James 1:22-25 

 

 

 

II. Use your gift properly, according to God’s Word.

 

A. Prophecy = to foretell or tell forth. 1st use is done 1Cor.13:8-10, Rev.22:18.

 

1. Now we are to tell forth.

 

2. Don’t be fooled by the false prophets. B. Hinns, K. Copelands,  J. Meyers,

 

3. P. Robertson on tsunami prediction, “sometimes I miss”!  Deut. 18:20-22, Deut.13:5

 

B. Service = not running things but running for others.

 

C. Teach = truth of God’s word, not part of it.  Jer.42:5, Acts 20:27,  2Tim2:15

 

D. Exhortation = admonish or encourage.

 

E. Giving = liberally, not looking for recognition.

 

F. Leading = carefully, Phil.1:9, Heb.5:14

 

G. Mercy = compassion for others, meeting their needs. Jn.8:11

 

 

 

III. Use your gift to unite not divide.

 

A.  We are part of the body of Christ. (5)

 

B.  Be a humble part. (3, 16)

 

C. Exercise your gift with Christian character. 9-15  Gal.5:22-23

 

1. Love

 

2. Discern

 

3. Put others first

 

4. Serve with excitement

 

5. Rejoice, persevere, pray.

 

6. Give – James 1:27

 

7. Be a blessing

 

8. Bear one another’s burdens

 

 

Con. Are you using the gift God has given you in the church He has placed you in?
