Today is Thursday.  It is a lovely day outside and I'm looking forward to the day.  It is going to be a great weekend as well.  Here is a truth to share:

YOUR GIFT MAKES ROOM FOR YOU- In serving God, we need to recognize that it is not about appointed positions, it is about God giving gifts that make room for people.  We don't excel because someone gave us a position or a title, but because having so yielded ourselves to the LORD, He grants us gifts that are used for His glory.  These gifts make room for us.  Notice:  Prov. 18:16  "A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men."  Promotion comes from God, but God uses the gifts He has given to you.  You must use those gifts to the best of your ability, and then God finds room for you to serve Him.  Many times over the years, a man has approached me about coming on staff as a laymen.  The key is that IF someone is productive in reaching others and growing a church, then that person has a room to serve.  His gift makes room for him!  Let us earn our positions by faithfully using the gifts God has given to us and let that be what promotes us.  (though we don't seek promotion)

Have a blessed day!  Pastor Mike Mutchler
