Today's YACC session is looking at the reading 1 Corinthians 12 v1-11 and looking at the different gifts we have been given to share, influence and support others.
Below is the reading for today's session:
12 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
Here are our Bible videos to watch:
We are so blessed, each one of us, to have special gifts we can share with others. Just think of your own talents and the talents of those around you. There are so many different ways to serve others. The Bible teaches us that we are all special and unique and that we can share and use those gift and talents to do good things for others around us.
What talents do you have?
What talents would others describe you as having?
In your families why not write down all the talents you all have and talk about how you use them
Thank you God for the many wonderful talents that you have given each one of us. Please show us how we can use those talents to share with others.. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen
