Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10

Once we are connected to Jesus Christ, we become the best in whatever we are. And we ought to do it to serve one another, not for our personal gratification. Believers coming together as a Church body, complement each other.

One of the mistakes believers often make is that we expect perfection from one another. We disappoint one another.

Paul says, we are God's workmanship. We are in the process of becoming like Jesus.

When we are filled with God's love we are going to overlook each other's short comings.

We often have a wrong picture of who God is. Isaiah describes the Lord as magnificently lifted high. In Isaiah 6:1-3 we read,

"I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.

Now, have you ever see God that way? Can you imagine God in His such majestic form, doing good works for you? Do you imagine standing before that God and giving excuses as to why you could not did not do the works, the good works He had prepared for you?

Good works are the works we can do for advancing the kingdom of God.

Good works have an impact for eternity.

If you do not make it a priority to do good works, you are going to fly by without doing any.

Jesus came for a specific good work. To save the mankind. To save you and me.

We have a specific good work expected of us - to further His kingdom.

What are we willing to do to further His kingdom?

I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3
