Good morning.

Paul reminds us that we are all part of the body of Christ and that each one of is significant and has a part to play. He also tells us to "eagerly desire the greater gifts."

(1 Corinthians 12:31)

It is important to understand that as we go through a course such as "Gifted", we are actually on a quest to to identify the gifts of the Spirit more than finding out what gift(s) we individually have.

The 7 grace gifts we are looking at in Romans 12:6-8 tell us more about God than what "I" have.

• Prophecy: God still speaks to us today to build up, cheer up and lift up

• Service: God's practical assistance in meeting needs cheerfully showing His love

• Teaching: God building up His Body for ministry

• Encouragement: God’s care and His desire to lift us up

• Generous giving: God’s on-going provision
