Equipped to Serve

by Greg Laurie on Jun 18, 2015
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all.

Many times through the process of elimination, you will discover what you are not so good at. Then in time, you will discover what you are good at—and it might be something you’ve never thought of.

I wanted to be one thing, and God said, "I will use that somewhat, but I’m going to call you to this other thing where you have no personal skill set so that you will be completely dependent on Me for it to work."

God wants to use you, God has a place for you, and God has gifts that He has instilled in you and wants you to put into action. To find out what you are called to do, you need to pray about it. I would also suggest that you do various things, and if they don’t work, then do something else. A lot of times we are praying for a sign from Heaven when that so-called sign might come in the form of an announcement that help is needed in Sunday school, or help is needed somewhere else. Why not get out there and just help where you can? Why not say, "All right, Lord. I’m available. I will do what You want me to do. I’m willing to take a step of faith"?

God might be gifting you in a way and in an area you’ve never even dreamed of.

Maybe you have messed up in life, and when you think about being used by God, you have a hard time wrapping your mind around being forgiven by Him. He made provision for you through Jesus Christ, who died for you, paid for all your sin, and then rose from the dead. If you will turn from your sin and ask for His forgiveness, He will pardon you.
