I read a story about a great sculptor Michaelangelo. He was moving a huge, odd shaped rock through a busy street.. “When asked what he was doing, the artist replied that he was going to release the angel within the stone.” Before he put hammer and chisel to the rock, he could see the potential within.
God is that Artist, Sculptor, Designer who looks at you and sees more than you can possibly imagine.
He sees the gifts that he has designed within you He knows exactly what your capable of and he knows the preparation that has taken place for you to serve in your church.
“All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them to each one, just as he determines. The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, the form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body – whether Jew or Greeks, slave or free – and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Now the body is not made up of one part but of many.” (1 Corinthians 12:11-14, NIV)
Each believer was created to serve the church with his God given talent. Let’s serve together for the Kingdom. ~Debra
