Memory Verses
There is a 4th memory verse we can work on. In order to transform our minds, we must be washing it with God’s word.

Prayer List
God is answering prayers. PTL that Larry’s noise has gone away.

This Week’s Review
What a great discussion concerning our gifts. I believe all present has a good understanding of their gift / gifts. When we look closely at I Peter 4:10 we realize that we (that is you & me) are instructed to use the gifts we discussed today to serve others. That is not a suggestion, it is a mandate from God. We are directed to do this in order that God may shower His GRACE ( that is undeserved favor) on the persons around us. When we do this we will prosper (Prov 11:24-25), yes I said PROSPER. That does not mean wealth as the word knows it but as God describes in I Tim 6:17-19.
“ Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”
(1Tim. 6:17-19, NIV)

Let us be vigilant about looking for opportunities around us to serve others.


Next Week

In the 4th part of our series we will discuss “Our Unique Personality.” This should be interesting. The 1st question asks us to share what our idea of the “ideal vacation” would be.
Be thinking about that.

May God Bless you and shine His face upon you,
Paul
