I don’t have to….. I want to. It truly is the expression of my gratitude for the grace I have been given.

I am thankful for the opportunity to serve in the church. In the little and the big, I love knowing there is purpose and a plan for me in the body of Christ.

In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. (Romans 12:6-8 NLT)
