Gifts From The Son – EAGERLY DESIRED, Part 3 – Steve Sudworth
Maturity is knowing Jesus and trusting Him completely. Jesus is desperate for us to grow up – perhaps more than anything – because He’s coming back for a mature bride. So to help us, Jesus has given us gifts (servant-leaders) who with skillful hands and integrity of heart help us prepare for His return.
1. A mature church – made up of mature believers – is one that operates effectively in each of the 5 areas of gifting.
2. When we invite Eph-4 gifts it’s for our collective and your pesonal good so prioritize the time.
3. When we receive these gifts with honor we receive the benefit of the grace of God on their lives.
4. Honor the gifts but ultimately desire to become more like Jesus.
