Summary: How do you fit in the body of Christ.

  Study Tools

How to become all that God wants You to be:

Step 1: Dedicate my Body! Vs. 1

Truth: Some believers never settle of dedicating their bodies to Christ.

Step 2: Eliminate competing Distractions! Vs. 2

Danger: Don’t get into the idea of “I’ll serve God when it is convenient.”

Step 3: Evaluate your Strengths. Vs. 3

“Sober”—to save your mind.

Key: Humility—means you are honest about both your strengths and weaknesses.

Every believer is a minister. Ephesians 4:12

Every believer has a different function. 1 Corinthians 12

Every ministry is important. 1 Corinthians 12

Every believer must cooperate. Matthew 20:28

“Gift”= “Charisma” also gives us the root for “Joy”.
