THRIVE Value #3:

REPRODUCE SERVANTS who discover and use their GIFTS to BUILD up others.”

1. A spiritual gift is a (what?) SUPERNATURAL ability given (how?) by the Holy Spirit to (who?) every Christian (when?) at the moment of salvation (why?) for the purpose of serving others.

(2 Corinthians 5:7; Galatians 5:16-26; John 15:4-5; Matthew 19:26; Job 42:2; Jeremiah 32:17)

2. We are DIFFERENT, and that is GOOD. But we FIT together.

(Ephesians 4:4-5; Romans 12:5)

3. God has gifted me to be a SERVANT so I can strengthen and encourage OTHERS.

(Romans 1:11-12, 12:3; 1 Peter 4:10; Mark 10:43-45)

4. The Holy Spirit gifts us as He desires, but it’s our responsibility as individuals to use our gifts to stir up a HUNGER in others and REPRODUCE other servants who desire to do the same!

(Romans 12:3; Titus 2:4, 2:6-8; Hebrews 10:24-25; Matthew 5:13-16; 1 Timothy 4:12; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Philippians 3:17)

5. What I am able to do in the Body of Christ is in no way diminished by my PAST!

(2 Corinthians 5:7; Galatians 3:26-28; John 8:11; Luke 7:47-50, 19:9)

6. I should never minimize how IMPORTANT I am to THRIVE and the Body of Christ!

(Romans 12:6-8)
