Gifted for God's Glory

by Brandon Ware
Whether you realize it or not, you are a gifted person.  The Bible says that every member of the body of Christ is uniquely gifted to meet specific needs in the body.  The grace of God gifts us to serve one another to the glory of God.  God is glorified in His church when we selflessly serve one another and seek to build one another up. read more

by Brandon Ware
To be sure, such a mission would not be easy for the disciples, and neither will it be easy for us.  The New Testament knows nothing about 'comfortable' Christianity that makes no demands upon a person's life.  Comfortable Christianity doesn't really take the gospel seriously and doesn't cost a person anything.  While the grace of God is free, that does not mean it is cheap.  The mission of making disciples still demands no less than these five things: God-honoring dependence, death-defying courage, Christ-confessing witness, risk-taking obedience, and all-surrendering devotion. read more
