Question one of the know that Dr. Tony Evans says you can fulfill your calling you figure out your gift, gift, and lead with call it, is to show up in the marketplace celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony have authored speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the alternative, the Bible tells us. Every believer is spiritually gifted at identifying those gifts and figuring out how to use them is another story. Today Dr. Evans explains how what makes you special can make you effective. Let's join us and calling Kristin equip you with to fulfill the principle which is called Christian men.

So now what that goal.

What the equipment necessary to book calling what God has called you a way God never calls that which is equally you can do before will be El Centro Pass and a few others, but Ephesians is central passage is a human ability. All people are born with whether there is also not all people ability or talent to benefit mankind in general.

You have to be a Christian to be talented and talented non-Christian things that some atheist who are talented in science or mathematics or building, or in philanthropy, so you have a Christian to be talented because of the talent is different than that ability given by God to believers, as opposed to mankind in general. That is just so people for the expansion of his it's called a spiritual gift because that's what the Holy Spirit is used by the Holy Spirit to accomplish God's spiritual presence. Therefore, if you are not in tune with the Holy Spirit, then it may be unclear what the spirit of giving you if you're not using it spiritually, then there won't be any its use what Satan did with the fall of man must take the gifts that God had intended to use for the propagation of the kingdom and what Satan did as he stole talents of man and he uses them to promote hell all Satan bringing men and women want to thing that you may have used including if you only use it for yourself sleeping stated into the kingdom of God. We will paint gifts that we may not even know what gifts we make the balance non-Christian worldview and will you develop those talents to make money will go to school will get an MBA will do all this will go seminar the workshop we will develop that to generally be beneficial to all. Not recognizing it spiritual implication that talent really is that God wants us to think about what you said is a gift. So it never has any spirituality to it and we just bought Jesus Christ.

People want to know you call talent. He called in on some level softening from your gift is to service the kingdom which means that when you discover your gift when you merge it with your calling is to show up in the marketplace of the kingdom of the teacher you my strength of the charge to your teaching ministry, but it may also be your career in public school, but your career in the public school. The public school God's kingdom did not get that in something you don't like to do something, you will have the ability to do about God calling you to something outside of who you are because your spiritual DNA already had God wants to use your experiences.

Good, bad and ugly for your calling. This lead to further verse 11 the case of apostles prompted some evangelists, and some of past teachers.

This is the leadership in the church for the equipping of the saints for the work of service to the building up of the body of Christ gifts ought to empower the church and the church's job is to infiltrate the kingdom on behalf of Christ gifts to him what the church okay if you use your gift to make money. That's okay, but it is not actually have the gift money.

It functions as a gift when it is used where the people of God the saints for the work assignments is to equip the saints to work evidently not discovered yet that there is a job of service.

Many Christians have the church sing to me preach to me, counseled me, encourage me giving money from the dickens on the benefit of the work will each understand God do all the work of service. That's why we require every member that is good because there is a God want you to do the job the charge and asked you your ship to get local orientation wants this so you try calling through the use of your get into a ministry and not just job. Some of us have the idea that God did not call me if you say you been called not been called in the traditional use of the word ministry professional church ministry.

Some of you will call to be doctors called to be lawyers called to be business people were called to be teachers look all that is the burning passion God is giving you and equip yet because you're not using the bill of anybody in the chart you haven't history out of the marketplace so he says his building up of the body of Christ on how we got to a man and woman for the fullness of Christ.

He says that the real work of service, and believe it is God's whole point somewhere you it's not just about you. You are not an only child and that's why we often say if you are called decide Christian and not a conduit Christian, then you are blocking your own blessing because of God. One won't work to if you want to be blessed but don't have a lot of be a blessing that what you've done is cut short your blessing because you want to be a blessing and not a vessel, you only concerned about what God is going to do for you to show your purpose so you can find your purpose and be more selfish with watching the show you your gift every now will never come back. This kingdom will not bless his church only be used for you to be well for you have another sermon on your calling in your career. He wants to be a football team player playing different positions, but they all on the same play different roles going in the same election for the same goal line moving together 12 of the whole chapel just and it says every member of the body is critical to use the human body is where the ear went with the seating be at the hearing be God placed each member in the body is all well for common some of the most important parts will be upfront, public well known name is critical and you'll get more natural calling.

This you will be in Rome some 12 hours straight. When you find God showing you your gift.

Don't think you'll sell more than you want to think you missed the big stuff you found God bless you.

Growing up in the price of the church with Danny out into the world to represent the kingdom are 16. The results of your use of spiritual gifts from whom the whole body, the church being held together by that which every joint supplies joint the middle of the block every joint supply. Most churches 10% of people do 90% of the work between muscle work… In the pink with a bird that but when everybody does what they gifted to do it says the whole body is working properly. I walked down the street. I stuck my tongue. My talk, but only not know my talk with her is because as a signal sent from the nerves that are tied to the muscles in my toe that sends a signal up to my brain and my brain is told by my told my mouth no, we are ranked exhibit J based on the signal from my towel and to be so not come to get away with sin because it by that which every joint and that's what he called me Julie 7000 miles and not serving is what you get this you will not serving you will never find you because not only gets a moving target. You can't sit something solidly when you show me how things are. God said not when you served and I will show you 25 what God that's my it is one. You will discover like it you will have the ability to do it. Some people I found out that abilities that they didn't know why because they were never stirred to sit and rest, as they set rest rest.

The other problem gives is that they apply to Merrill Lynch applied only the stuff the traditional church stuff and ex-wife of your ministry here so Broadus might include tutoring and fathering and mothering and and education in all men often become the kingdom is broad between the ball every thing that you use to have dominion over the earth. You get to go in slightly different directions so as not now will think it's a very broad that whatever deposit we come to the closures. According to the working of each individual part, I want to work not sloppy working left over working not shucking and jiving working proper working.

If you are employed, you want your employees to work properly. Simply stick please please please excellently allow pastors who live on sat night specials. They prepare some of the Saturday night and the cover themselves. They say what the Holy Spirit gave your word that way) give a word in the word know you you properly working you want excellence about your calling. You want to be the best in your field. You can be individual part, causes the growth of the body because you want excellence because God is worthy, you know, it's a great gift that he didn't have to give you the privilege to make money using it. If you get your career just like wow, look at this gap and look at this phrase for the building up of itself in love. Using a body of a stranger and he says when a body is working right. It builds itself up.

Many of you do not notice, but many of you have already had cancer don't notice what you've already had cancer, cancer is basically renegade sales cancel ourselves. They don't want to go along with the programming side, let me split off and won't think what would be if you would leave your body to do it, but not it was the do it all in your body. Renegade sounds one company so they reproduce and you got a lot renegade sounded never to be by every duplicate in a go but I would be okay if they would stay still but no, not all they want to investigate the signs and shut down many of us have already had kids that is sounds that decided we will do all because the system was strong enough and alive enough to build systems that I might not. Sounds we got a full open-air thing. Getting white blood cells raise all that independence out and destroy it before you have a new, healthy body.
