Shaped for Serving God

November 14, 2004

 

1 Corinth 12: 1—11 

Point to Ponder: I was shaped for serving God  

            You are God’s hand crafted work of art! You are a custom designed, one of a kind, (original masterpiece). He planned every day of your life, this means nothing that happens in your life is insignificant. 

 (Psa 139:14 NIV)  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 

(Psa 139:15 NIV)  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 

(Psa 139:16 NIV)  your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 

            God never wastes anything. He would not give you abilities, interests, talents, gifts, personality, and life experiences unless he intended to use them for His glory. 

            Five important factors form the word SHAPE. 

Spiritual gifts:
            God gives every believer spiritual gifts to be used in ministry. You can’t earn your spiritual gifts. They are an expression of God’s grace to you. Neither do you get to choose which gifts you’d like to have. When we use our gifts together, we ALL benefit. This is why we are commanded to discover and develop our spiritual gifts. 

Heart:
            Your heart represents the source of all your motivations. 

Abilities 

Personality

Experience
