Galatians 6:10 – So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
As a Bible teaching pastor, it means the world to me that you would give me the honor of helping you study these great themes of the Bible, around which sometimes there is great confusion. I genuinely pray that you have a better idea of divine design, and that God leads you to a place where you can use your gifts for God’s glory, others’ good, and your joy.
Lastly, I pray that as you studied these great themes of spiritual gifts, two things would happen. One, I pray that your concept of God got bigger. He is more profound and powerful, more creative and considerate, and more free and faithful than we could ever hope or imagine. When Jesus told Nicodemus that the work of God was like a powerful wind, what He meant was that the work of the Spirit is powerful, unpredictable, and uncontrollable but altogether wonderful. Two, I pray that as we studied together that you would not only come to a better, deeper, and richer understanding of who God is, and who you are, but also how others are. If you are married, parenting a child, or serving in a ministry then you are interacting with precious people who are very different than you.
The differences between your divine design and theirs should not be a point of contention, but cooperation. God made you differently because you are better together and by appreciating one another, encouraging one another, and serving one another, the Kingdom of God will be strengthened, and your relationship will be deepened!
