For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. — 1 Corinthians 12:14-18
Dear Brothers and Sisters, if you are in Christ, you have been uniquely GIFTED by the Holy Spirit of God to serve for His glory! Please let that sink in just a bit. YOU. HAVE. BEEN. GIFTED. BY. GOD! And…the gifts He gives are done at His choosing for His purposes. Wow! Are we using our gifts for Him? We need your gifts to be used at FBG! We need your gifts to be used in partnership with ministries of FBG! We need your gifts to be about fulfilling the Great Commission! We are many members but one body…the Body of Christ.
If you missed our Volunteer Informational meeting on March 5 and you’re interested in learning more about serving, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). It’s never too late to use your God-given gifts to serve Him! Let’s do it!!
