Learning on the Way
We see God’s giving nature in Ephesians 4. Talk about some of the gifts God has given generally. Talk about gifts God has given you specifically. How have those gifts impacted your life and your service to God and others?
Do you feel equipped to do the work of the ministry through the leadership of the church? Where does the leadership of the church excel in equipping the saints? Where can they do better? Are you willing to help them by encouraging them where they excel and pray for them and speak with them about the areas they can do better in?
How do you do at speaking the truth in love? Are you quick to speak the truth but lack love or are you fearful of speaking the truth and hurting someone’s feelings? Are you willing to receive the truth when it is spoken to you?
Would you define yourself as a love-contributor or a love consumer at Church on The Way? Do you sit back and wait for people to come to you, or do you seek out the people? What are ways you can move to becoming more of a love-contributer?
What part do you feel like you play in the body? Do you play that part? If so, how can we help you grow in playing your part? If not, what needs to be done so you can find your place of effective service?
