Review the message notes
Read Ephesians 2:19-22, Romans 12:1-8

1. Spurgeon said,
“I know there are some who say, ‘Well, I have given myself to the Lord, but I do not intend to give myself to the church.’ Now why not? ‘Because I can be a Christian without it.’ Are you quite clear about that? You can be as good a Christian by disobedience to your Lord’s commands as by being obedient? What is a brick made for? To help build a house. It is of no use for that brick to tell you that it is just as good a brick while it is kicking about on the ground as it would be in the house. It is a good-for-nothing brick. So you rolling-stone Christians, I do not believe that you are answering your purpose. You are living contrary to the life which Christ would have you live, and you are much to blame for the injury you do.”
What do you think of that quote?
2. How do you see your gifts and talents fitting into the church in a given month?
3. What holds you back or what encourages you to use of your gifts?
4. A big part of the week for the church is singing, prayer, and teaching every Sunday. How can you prepare for our gathering? How can you anticipate what God is going to say to you, and participate on Sunday morning?
