Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
It’s a day to remember that you are loved. Jesus displayed God’s love for you at the cross, so that you might live through him. And it’s also a day to respond to God’s love by loving one another. Who could you share God’s love with today?
It is week 2 of our current teaching series, in which we are seeking to discern, and move forward in, our unique God-given SHAPE. Today, we are focussing on Spiritual Gifts. What are they? Who are they given to? What are they given for? Find out the answers to these questions, and a few others, in today’s livestreamed service, which you can access from 10am by clicking here.
Of course, we don’t want to just learn about spiritual gifts, we want to discover which gifts God has given us, so that we can utilise them in our lives. With that in mind, we have put together an assessment for you to complete, which we are hoping will help you to discern or clarify the gifts you have received. This is solely for your benefit, we will not be asking to know your results, but it would be great for you to share them with a couple of close Christian friends, who can help to bring confirmation based on their experience of you.
The assessment is available in 2 ways: CLICK HERE for the Microsoft Excel version, which will automatically display your results once you’ve completed it; or CLICK HERE for the PDF version, which you can print and fill in yourself. If you are unable to access Excel or a printer, then please email Julie, and we will try to get a printed version out to you.
I am aware that some of you will be immediately averse to this kind of thing, but can I please encourage you to give it a go. We are certainly not claiming that it will give perfectly accurate results, but we do feel it will give some helpful pointers that you can ponder on and pray into. Thank you for you engagement with us in this – we pray that God uses it to enlighten and empower you.
Finally, a reminder that we have ‘Pray for our Nation’ again on Wednesday evening at 7pm. Look out for the link in Tuesday’s email.
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
