A LIFE OF SERVANTHOOD
In his message, Gene refers to a spiritual house:
1. What is your "dream house" like? Where would it be?
2. What is the single most important part in the construction of a house? Why?
In thinking about the weekend message, how does the statement "you are a minister" make you feel?
(a). Read 1 Corinthians 12:4-7. How are the terms "gifts", "service", and "works" different? (b). In 1 Corinthians 12:7, it is said that, "Each of those is a manifestation of the spirit." What does that mean to the group?
Please read 1 Peter 4:10. What "gifts" might your group have that could or should be used?
What are the risks of just jumping in? Are there any safety nets or backstops available that we might rely on?
CHECK THE MIRRORS
Consider your "new identity" as part of the priesthood of all believers. What does that look like to you personally?
Gene mentioned you as being handpicked to be in this country, with this group of people, in this church, in this community, at this time. Why do you think that is?
How can we pray for you this week?
