Serving in church

April 11th, 2010

The Bible says in 1 Peter 4:10 that, “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms”.  This verse tells us that to use our gifts to minister to others.

Not only do I try to use my God given spiritual gifts to serve, I also think it is important to use my skills I have gained in my secular work to serve God and to serve others in the church setting.

Before we moved to Merredin I worked for ten years in web design and maintenance and also did a lot of desktop publishing too. I have found that these skills can be used in my work I do for the local church.

Two of my roles at our church I regularly do is update our website and I prepare and print our weekly newsletter. These are  two simple ways of using my skills to serve God and be a blessing to others.

How about you? What skills have you gained over the years that you can use to serve God and others in church life?

God Bless,

Dave
