Sermon Notes and Scripture

  1. GIFTEDNESS ALWAYS STARTS WITH HUMILITY.

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. – Romans 12:3

  1. OUR GIFTS DON’T MAKE US BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, JUST UNIQUELY DIFFERENT.

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. – Romans 12:4-8

  1. OUR GIFTS ARE TO BE USED FOR THE KINGDOM, NOT FOR BEATING OTHERS DOWN THROUGH DRIVE-BY GUILTINGS.
