Ephesians 4:1-16 and John 6:24-35
The reading from Ephesians and John both talk about God’s gifts. In John, Jesus recalls for the people the manna that they received during the trek from Egypt to Israel and uses this knowledge to remind them that it is God who brings life into the world. Paul writes that the gifts we receive are meant to equip us to build up the church as we mature. Sometimes, we do not want to hear these kinds of statements. Why is that? Think about that this week.
This week, think about how we as individuals and the church are using our gifts to draw people into the love of God. Could we improve what we are doing? How?
