Your Personal SHARE Tools
Your Personal SHARE Tools by Keith Cook
"Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also." Matthew 6:19-21
God has given each of us personal share tools through which we can share our faith in Jesus Christ. Today, lets look at some of these tools and how we can best utilize them to further the Kingdom of God.
A. Your Body - Our bodies are the temple of the Lord. We have been designed by God to use our bodies in service to the Lord. With our lips we praise Him. Our mouths are used to speak for Him. Our eyes are used to look at the needs around us as well as to examine the scriptures. Our hands are used to reach out for Him, and our feet are to be used to go for Him.
B. The Bible - God gave us His Word to bless us and to lead us in all the ways we are to go. In the Bible we learn how to live, work, witness, and experience God.
C. Prayer - In prayer we can move the hand of God to the needs of man. God has given us the gift of prayer to allow us to speak to Him and to hear from Him.
D. Spiritual Gifts - To each has been given spiritual gifts to glorify God in their bodies. Seek out the Lord to discover your primary ministry gift and serve Him with all your heart. All gifts are given to bless the needy and win converts to our Lord.
E. God Given Talents - God has equipped each believer with wonderful talents that can be used to bring honor to Christ. Some have great voices to sing and proclaim His name. Some have organization skills and administrative tendencies to plan and direct great projects. Many have compassion and artistic expressions that God can use. Use every gift you have in service to the King of Kings.
F. The Spirit of God - Once someone comes to Christ they have all the Power of the Holy Spirit to minister in fullness and truth. You are not left alone to minister for Christ. You have a guide, comforter, and counselor. Allow the Spirit to move you to service.
G. Your Life - Every area of your life has been given to you to be used of God. Be a good steward of all you have been given. One day you should desire to hear the Lord say, "Well done my good and faithful steward."
Use each of these personal share tools to honor and serve the Lord each day.
Daily Prayer Focus: Praise God for the opportunity to serve Him today. Pray that you will glorify God by your Body, Bible, Prayer, Spiritual Gifts, and your Life and use them today for His Service.
