Singers and organists are a magnificent way to praise God. However, singers and organists are not ONLY what our churches need.

Many people struggle with the concept of serving God. They might say, "I am not qualified. I wouldn't make a difference". Excuses are easy if we focus on the abilities that we do not have. What gift do you think you might have? Think about these:

ENCOURAGEMENT-give hope to those that are discouraged

HELPS-serve behind the scenes, whenever needed without having to be asked rather than finding someone else to do it

INTERSESSION-pray on behalf of someone or some cause

KNOWLEDGE-search the scriptures for understanding to teach and for practical use

LEADERSHIP-motivate others to perform to the best of their abilities

COMPASSION-focus on love, grace and dignity to those facing pain, discomfort, suffering, hardship and crisis

WRITING-teach God's word to others through writing

Ask! Ask God, your family and your friends to tell you what abilities are at work in your life that you may have never noticed.

On the other side, are you burnt out in ministry activity? Maybe you are serving God with the wrong ability!

To reflect: (1) What is YOUR definition of an ability? (2) List 3 reasons for discovering your ability (3) Do you have a strong sense of concern in this area? (4) Is this something I would like to do? (5) Do I show ability in this area? (6) Do others give you good feedback in this area?

Then, pray:

Colossians 3:17

And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

1 Peter 4:10

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms.

Today, promise yourself to honestly discover the ability that God has given you. Nourish and share your ability with the world as to say thank you to God.
