Our Lord Jesus wants us to grow into His likeness in every way. This week, Ptr. Jared Co reminds us that Jesus gave the church His plan and His gifts so we can grow deeper in the Lord.

1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)

  • Activity instructions:
    • Each person writes down his/her own gifts and talents.
    • As a group, take turns to identify each other’s gifts and talents.
      (Note to leaders: This is an opportunity to encourage and affirm the members of their gifts and to use these to serve the Lord.)

3. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)

  • Read the passage. In vv.12-13, what is the role of the apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds and teachers?
  • In v.14, what are the characteristics of a spiritual infant?
  • According to the passage, how can we grow from being a spiritual infant to maturity?
  • What can we learn about Christ from this passage?

4. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)

  • Reflect and share: In what way am I being a spiritual baby? What can I do to mature in faith?

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)

  • With the gifts and talents God has given you, what specific ways can you use these to serve God?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)

  • Thank God for giving gifts and talents to each believer to be used for ministry.
  • Pray for opportunities to witness and to serve God through the gifts and talents.
  • Pray for growth, unity as one Body, maturity in the faith, and love as God has first loved us.
