Sermon Notes

Adventure of Trust
“Each of Us”
1 Peter 4:10

Each of us includes you

  • by grace
  • Justified and righteous in the sight of God
  • Qualified at the time we put our trust in Jesus

Each of us possess God’s gift right now, today, in this moment

  1. The gift you have received, it’s purpose is not for you
  2. Serving others means you are “doing something primarily for the benefit of another person”

Each of us should

  • exercise the gift given to you
  • because Jesus is coming soon

Each of us must serve

  • faithfully
  • As a steward of God’s grace

You are qualified:

  • to exercise your gift
  • to emphasize others
  • to maximize your faith
  • In order to glorify God

Core CHRIST-like Characteristics: Heart of Worship, Relates with others center, Trustworthy Steward of God’s resources.
