“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” – 1 Peter 4:10
Have you ever heard the expression, “Jack of all trades, master of none?” This phrase highlights the idea that a person is interested in, gifted in, or even chasing after a myriad of things but does not specialize or focus on any one thing. I had my first job at age 14; and since then, I have had more jobs and employment experiences than I can count. Everything from washing dishes to working in a cemetery to a sales director. I even had a short job where I sold organs (the musical kind). Safe to say, I have heard the above expression about myself enough times. While I would not change anything about my past, there is one thing about my present that surpasses all of it: I am fulfilling and stewarding the very gift the LORD has graced me with. I am humbled and incredibly grateful for what I get to do in service to Him and His Church!
In the above passage, Peter wants us all to know that we all have been given a gift to steward for the mission of Jesus. Do you know yours? There is something incredibly special about knowing how God has gifted you, knowing that Jesus came to serve you, save you, and send you to use your gifts for His glory! That should motivate you, and I hope it does!
This week, Church, we are going to learn that Jesus sends us all on mission with a gift; and I can’t wait to unpack a few verses that teach us about what that means and what it looks like to live on mission, using our gifts together to push the mission further!
Be sure to listen to the worship set as you prepare your heart for worship.
Love you, Church. See you, Sunday!
