Video sermon series based on the book Celebration of Discipline, by Richard Foster

“Gathered at the Passover feast, the disciples were keenly aware that someone needed to wash the others’ feet. The problem was that the only people who washed feet were the least. So there they sat, feet caked with dirt. … Then Jesus took a towel and a basin and redefined greatness.”
~Celebration of Discipline, p. 126

“I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.” ~ Jesus, in John 13:14-15

A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God
#3: You Don’t Need Someone Else’s Habits or Gifts

Proverbs 6:16-19 ; 1 Corinthians 12:12-20

箴 言 6:16-19 ; 歌 林 多 前 書 12:12-20

For further thought and reflection:

Spend some time this week thinking about and identifying your gifts. Don’t limit yourself to the “traditional” spiritual gifts, but think also about things that you are good at or enjoy doing. Celebrate the unique way God has built you and ask Him to show you the opportunities He’s made available for you to use those gifts.

“For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”            ~ Philippians 2:13 (NLT)
因 为 你 们 立 志 行 事 都 是 神 在 你 们 心 里 运 行 , 为 要 成 就 他 的 美 意 。                                           ~ 腓 立 比 書2:13 (CUVS)
