This past Sunday we had a great time at Every Nation London Hammersmith congregation – I preached on “stirring up your gifts” and started by saying that this is a dangerous message: If you do this, you could change the world; If you don’t, you may be facing some of the harshest words Jesus had via a parable to those who buried their talents: “You wicked & lazy servant” – now thats dangerous!
But you can find you purpose and your place and your people, and you can fulfil the good works you were created to do in Christ Jesus, which he has prepared beforehand for you to walk in (Eph 2:10)
Here’s are two video extracts from the message on Sunday. You can download the whole audio message here, as well as the handout notes with the S.H.A.P.E.D. profile , which may be helpful if you need some help understanding “giftings” in Scripture, and how to apply them in your life.
Your are S.H.A.P.E.D. for significance…
“We are all born originals, but sadly most people will die as copies.”
