04.06.14 Worship Confessional

diversity_signifier_dnaYesterday as we continued our series, “Marks of a Missional Community,” we explored the reality that we are a gifted and empowered. A missional community is a community of men and women, boys and girls, gifted and empowered by the Holy Spirit with diverse abilities that enable it to accomplish the work of God in the world today.

The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:

“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. ” (1 Corinthians 12:4-7)

Did you notice how many times Paul used the word, “different?” And how many times Paul used the word, “same?” We are one, but not the same.

Here are a few questions for you to consider this week:

  1. What gifts, capacities and abilities has God entrusted to you? How are you using them to help our community of faith become everything God desires us to be? How available are you to support the common good through your giftedness?
  2. What is missing in your life? Where do you need the support of others? What is your level of vulnerability and what is one step you could take this week to let others know that you need them?
