Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Most Christians have a desire to find their spiritual gifts and to know what kind of life and mission that God is calling them to. This study allows an individuals and groups to begin to reflect on where their deep desire and the world’s deep need intersects.
This seven-week study helps individuals and small groups to explore spiritual gifts using selected passages from the Bible. Not an exhaustive study of spiritual gifts, the study takes a personal, reflective approach. In addition to completing a self-scored gifts inventory, participants will reflect on their interests, preferences, and talents. As participants read and respond to scripture and participate in small-group sessions, they will be guided to consider prayerfully how God is calling them to use their gifts day by day.
