Spiritual Gifts for the Common Good

1 Corinthians 12: 4-5 say:

There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.

On this Call to Ministry Sunday, Rev. Paul Christie preached on the need to exercise our gifts for the common good of God’s kingdom. God endows us all with gifts but we sometimes downplay them, or consider them inferior or too insignificant to apply in the service of the church or a community project that glorifies the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is a timely call to us in Persatuan. No gift is immaterial or irrelevant. But in exercise any gifts we need to discern that they must be used for the common good of the ministry we exercise them in.

It is my prayer in the Persatuan that we keep this foremost in our mind as we get down to work for the good of the future of this project.
