“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23–24
We invite you to contribute to the life and mission of St. Peter’s through the generous stewardship of your gifts. Whatever your talent or skill God wants us to steward those gifts for Him. God wants us to bless others.
How can you put that into practice? There’s a ministry that uses your skill or talent to help others. If you love working on cars, volunteer to repair single moms’ cars for free. Or if you paint, hold art classes for nursing home residents. If God made you an amazing singer, sing for Him. If you look in our community, you’re sure to find a need you can meet with the talents God’s given you.
God made us all different because together, all of us make up the kingdom. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul compares the body of Christ to a human body: Each of us is unique, but together we make the body complete. And Christ is the head of the body (Ephesians 5:23), so everything we do points back to Him.
God wants you to use your unique role in the body of Christ to glorify Him. Use your God-given abilities to reach those who don’t know Him—and give Him the credit for your talents.
We invite you to faithfully use your talents the way He wants us to. When we meet Him in heaven can rest in our reward: “Well done good and faithful servant”.
