Love matters to Jesus. He desires His Church to grow up into His likeness. He calls us to a transparent work in the love of the Great “I Am” – the First and the Last; the Living One; the One who holds the keys of death and Hades. Love Matters!
These three verses of Ephesians point to He who gave; our responsibility to prepare; and unity in the fullness of Christ. Authentic transparent spiritual leadership is called upon to empower the church in its mission.
Gift-Based Ministry is God’s way of doing Church. God gifts His Church with everything it needs to do everything He plans to advance His Kingdom. He apportions spiritual gifts through the generous grace of Jesus Christ so the Church can transparently function as the Body of Christ. This message also describes why spiritual gifts matter from an historical perspective and the great victory won at the cross.
