Growing Your Gifts
Growing Your Gifts is authored by Stephen Gaukroger and is the third book included in an omnibus edition. The other two titles included in this edition are Hunger For Holiness and Thirsty For God.
Growing Your Gifts details how you can find your God given gifts and how you can use them in and among the church. The book is based on Paul’s letters to Timothy.
It’s a shame that more of us do not use these God given gifts in our own churches. We were given these gifts for a purpose and that is to glorify God. The pastor isn’t the only one who was given a gift to be used for God.
I can’t put my finger on it but somehow this book is full of very good information but yet has left me with little to say about it. I can’t point to a specific quote or chapter that I really connected with or one that has stuck with me.
Although I did not find this book riveting to read it was interesting and a fresh reminder to use those gifts which God has entrusted to us. If you are wavering in your commitment to the church or trying to decide what you could do to serve, give this book a read it may be just what you are looking for.
