One Body, part 4: Gifted

What is greater, the gift, or the giver? What do we spend time thinking about? Appreciating? When we worry about things that are gifts, what does that say about our trust in the giver? When we spend our time trying to gather up and store gifts, or when we measure others by the gifts they have, where are our hearts? We have been gifted to share, not to compare. Comparing misplaces the glory rightly due only to God, the source, and divides the body. Sharing His gifts, instead, builds the One Body up in love, and glorifies Him.

From Series: " One Body "

This 4-week series follows the Pentecost lectionary schedule, beginning with the seventh Sunday after Pentecost. As we continue on the journey with Jesus, and see how God works through His people, we see the unity that God has established between God and man, and between all of His people. This has always been the plan, and God sent the one Savior, Jesus, to gather and care for His people, the Spirit to work the one faith the hearts of man, and gifted us to be work well as one body, one church. This is all God’s work, His choice, His establishing, supporting, building, and gifting of His one people, the One Body of Christ. During the Pentecost II series, both the Gospel and the Epistle (mostly from Mark and Ephesians) are emphasized by the theme for the day, so they are both highlighted.
