Wrapped or in a bag?
In the box or out of the box?
The size of the bag or box.
The beauty of the paper.
They don’t tell us the value of what’s in there.
My mentor Dr. Fray would say
he could look out across his congregation
and see a lot of unwrapped gifts.
Dear follower of Jesus,
You’ve been graced by Him.
He has graced you for His mission.
4For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, 5so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. 6Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; 7if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; 8the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness. Romans 12:4-7
“Having gifts… let us use them.”
What’s holding you back?
