Bible Study Dec 1: Shaped for Serving God & Understanding Your Shape

Posted on Tue, Dec 7, 2004

Our Bible Study lessons are taken from The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren Ė a chapter each week until the book has been completed. 
 
December 1: Shaped for Serving God & Understanding Your Shape
Taught by Assistant Pastor Porter
 
Our lesson tonight was taken from Chapters 30 and 31 of The Purpose Driven Life.
Points to Ponder:
 
I.  Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts
 >God gives every believer spiritual gifts to be used in ministry.  (Each gift is
 unmerited.)
 >Gifts are an expression of Godís grace to you.
 >No individual receives all gifts
 >An unopened gift is worthless
 
II. Listening to Your Heart
 >Heart describes the bundle of desires, hopes, interests, ambitions, passion
 >Signs of serving God with hearts are enthusiasm and effectiveness
 >Figure out what you love to do and do it for Godís glory
 
III. Applying Your Abilities
 >All of our abilities come from God
 >Every ability can be used for Godís glory
 > What Iím able to do, God wants me to do
 
IV. Using Your Personality
 >There is no right or wrong temperament or personality for ministry
 >Your personality will affect how and where you use your spiritual gifts and
 abilities
 
V. Employing Your Experiences
 >Six kinds of experiences:
 -Family
 -Educational
 -Vocational
 -Spiritual
 -Ministry
 -Painful
 
The very experiences that you have resented or regretted most in life Ė the ones youíve wanted to hide and forget Ė are the experiences God wants to use to help others.  They are your ministry!
