I can remember doing Social Studies school reports on the natural resources of foreign countries, as well as our homeland. America has been blessed with many natural resources and has shared that bounty around the world.
Did you realize the church is also blessed in the same way? God has gifted and equipped His people in such a way that we have a surplus of supplies ready to be tapped into! (Romans 12:4-9)
A few gifts we easily recognize as being used in church ministry are prophecy (proclaiming God's word), and teaching; but the entire list is used to help build and strengthen the body of Christ, His church. Three words in the last portion of our scripture need to be applied liberally...mercy, cheerfulness, and love (vs8b-9a). Those resources become natural only by God's grace!
