Happy Birthday!

The following is an excerpt from the upcoming release Creative Bible Lesson: The Trinity–

Sometimes when we receive gifts, we are thrilled beyond words. Other times, we may ask, “What were they thinking?” Some gifts come about naturally; others need a rather bulky instruction manual. To some extent, some of these responses could be said of gifts we have received from God. Yet, we can trust that the Father knows what He’s doing – Jesus proved that. The gifts of the Spirit are not simply dropped into our lives for us to figure out on our own. God works in and through us to make those gifts known as well as useful according to His purposes. As your teens will see, some gifts may seem more desirable than others, but God gives them all for the building up of His family. It’s not about the individual gift or even the individual person – it’s about the service, the love, the community, the missio dei (mission of God – Session 3). Let’s pray that our teens begin to recognize their giftedness and allow God to make use of those gifts for His glory.
