A followers of Christ have the grace gifts that Paul writes about in Romans 12 in different ratios. That means that to a lesser or greater degree we all have the gifts of service, mercy, teaching, encouragement, etc. etc.
The more we exercise these gifts the more accomplished we will become in each of them.
Take teaching for example. We may feel that we do not have this gift. Yet Jesus says to each of us, "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)
We somehow have the idea that the gift of teaching requires us to stand in front of people presenting them with a structured message/lecture. However, we must remembere the first part of the Great Commision - "go and make disciples".
How do we do this? Through relationship and by demonstrating Christian lifestyle. In doing this, we will be carrying out the Great Commision by teaching a new disciple.
The heart of discipleship - each one teach one to reach one and teach one.
If you are not already doing this, ask God to show you someone that you can disciple.
Let's do it!
