Spiritual Life Coaching – Commitment: Gifts

Many_Gifts_One_Spirit_wide_t_nvSpiritual Life Coaching – Commitment: Gifts

When you dare to dream you need to make a commitment to grow. The second thing we’ll consider this week is to understand that discovering our meaning and purpose we need to connect our “spiritual gifts” with others. The scripture that illustrates this is: “We are like the various parts of a human body. Each part gets its meaning from Christ’s Body as a whole, not the other way around. Each of us finds our meaning and function as a part of his body. But as a chopped-off finger or cut-off toe we wouldn’t amount to much, would we?” Romans 12:4-5 (The Message) We find our meaning and function as a part of His (Jesus) body. Another name we use for the Body is “Church.”

I understand Church to be the larger Church – that is the worldwide Church. Luther’s definition for Church is a good one, “wherever the Word is preached and sacraments administered properly.” I suppose I would add where those who are discipled put their God given spiritual gifts to use. Sometime if you get a chance go to http://www.elca.org search for “spiritual gifts” and use the spiritual gifts assessment tool to help identify some of the strengths that you are given. Remember that your brothers and sisters in different denominations share in these gifts and together we can make our communities and the world a better place. We can dream God sized dreams.

Be Well…
