Intro – It amazes me how serious some people can take a game.   We must remember it’s just a game! It has no eternal consequences. Paul uses the games, the Isthmian games in Corinth, to show that eternal life is more than a game.




I. We should take it more serious than a game.


A. We practice to be better athletes.


B. Do we practice to be better Christians?


1. What we eat, Spirit food is God’s Word. Jn.4:34, 1Cor.10:3-4, Jn.1:1, 14, Ps.119:11


2. Work out, meditation is Sp. workout. Ps.1:2, Gal.5:23,


3. Practice, Put into action what you know, Sp. Self-control.  Phil. 2:12, Eph.4:22-24




II. We should keep in mind our reward.


A. Earthly games – perishable-trophy.   Lk.9:25


B. Christian life – imperishable-eternal life.  1Peter 1:4




III. Our life decisions affect others.


A. How we discipline ourselves makes a difference. Rom.8:13


B. Our Christian behavior leads others. 2Thes 3:7, Titus 2:7



Con. Eternity is for keeps. No re-dos, no second chances. It’s not a game where if you don’t like the outcome you can just play another game. Make sure you have committed your life to Christ and are walking in His way.


Romans 12:6-16

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?
