The Church is being called to Rise Up in this season and use their God-given spiritual gifts. We are reminded of the words of Ephesians 2:10 which says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” These verses remind us that it is God’s will that we use our spiritual gifts to glorify Him. We must not be afraid to stand out and be different, but rather embrace the unique purpose and destiny He has laid out for each of us.
Just as Jesus did during His earthly ministry, He calls us to go forth and share the good news with a dying and broken world. In order to do this effectively, we must allow ourselves to be completely surrendered and empowered by the Holy Spirit. As we walk in obedience before our Heavenly Father, He will equip us with all the necessary tools and resources needed in order to reach those around us who need love and hope.
In addition to using our spiritual gifts for evangelism purposes, it’s also important that we remember who God has called us to be through His Word. Our identity can only be found in Him and not from what society tells us or from trying to live up to any worldly standards. It’s critical that we cling tightly onto His promises knowing that He is faithful even when times get tough and injustices arise around us. By doing so, it gives us strength to trust Him even more amidst difficult circumstances.
We are blessed beyond measure because no matter what comes our way, God will never leave nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6). Even when things seem uncertain or unpredictable, may these truths bring comfort knowing Jesus is right beside every step of the way if we allow Him to guide our paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).
Rise Up Church with Courage and Boldness walking confidently in who YOU were created to be by God Himself and You will set the world on Fire!!!
