Our text today, Ephesians 4:7-16, Paul adds one more way we are unified, through the practice of our gifts. Every believer has been given a gift and is called to use their gift for the building of the Church to maturity. Do you know your Gifts? And are you using it for the Church?

In order for the Word of God to really take hold in our life we need to read it and listen to it consistently over time. If we want it to move the 18 inches from our head to our heart, we have to slow down and really meditate on it and put it into practice. Below you will find a different question for each day of the week. Slowly reread the passage each day and then answer the corresponding question and complete the action step.
During the Week
Read Ephesians 4:7-16 each day before answering the questions:
Monday – Make a list of everything the passage tells you about God or Christ.
Tuesday – Make a list of everything the passage tells you about yourself (anything it puts a finger on in you).
Wednesday – Make a list of each example to follow or avoid, commands to obey or do, and promises to claim.
Thursday – If I really believed this, how would I be different?
Friday – Share what you have learned this week with a mentor, spouse, home church host, or a pastor.
Memory verse – Memorize and pray this prayer this week: Ephesians 4:15-16 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love

Ways to Give
Giving of our finances is a response of worship to God who created us, saved us, and is continually at work in the lives of each of His children to reflect more and more of the character of Jesus Christ. Giving is an opportunity to respond to the gospel of Christ in a way that we can find our hearts freed to reflect the generous heart of God.
“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:7-8
