If you’ve been paying attention…you know that a church is not a building, and it’s not a Sunday “event”, or a performance, nor is it a non-profit corporation… It is a community, a network of people (bound together because we’ve all been adopted into God’s new family)…  And the way you plug in and make use of this network is by discovering and using your Spiritual Gifts… that is, the abilities that arise as you change for Jesus, becoming more loving, less selfish, caring, and learn to serve people…  The really cool part of all that is that using your SG’s can be crazy fun!  Now we’re almost there – but we need you (those who GET IT) to step up…  Stretch your SG legs, be willing to make mistakes, repent, make changes, and keep going…

I’m looking forward to a day when…

  • People with the gift of organizing use their gifts to get people together – Sunday afternoons, Saturdays, special occasions, weekday evenings…
  • When people who have the gift of being the life of the party will use their SGs by making people feel welcome, and help develop real friendships…
  • When people who have the gift of listening and counseling with godly common sense will come on Sundays looking for opportunities to hang out and lend an ear to people who need it…
  • When people with the gift of worship will find natural ways to show people it’s okay to love your Savior…
  • When people with the gift of awesomeness would help make our church family awesome – and help those who are awesomeness-challenged to discover their inner awesome.
  • When people who are just so naturally awesome that they become trend setters will stop following the crowd and start pointing people toward Jesus
  • When Christians who’ve spent years in the church being consumers and spectators will get off their butts and get in the game…

Now that would be something! That’s the church I think Jesus is after… that’s the kind of church I want to be a part of.  How about you?  The ball is in your court.
