My Romaine lettuce is starting to bolt. However, I have no interest in collecting lettuce seeds. I told Ella to uproot it and plant her peace lilies in the pot.
Read: Ephesians 4:11-13. He also gave apostles, prophets, missionaries, as well as pastors and teachers as gifts to his church. Their purpose is to prepare God’s people, to serve, and to build up the body of Christ. This is to continue until all of us are united in our faith and in our knowledge about God’s Son, until we become mature, until we measure up to Christ, who is the standard.
Think: What a job disruption! The congregation’s leaders are a gift from God, to prepare, serve, and build the body of Christ.
Pray: Heavenly Father, by your Spirit’s leading, help me to provide godly support for our church leaders. Also, if chosen to lead, make me your gift to the church, to prepare, serve, and build the congragation’s body toward maturity in faith and knowledge of Christ Jesus. Amen.
