Every Sunday service from Gratia church, they have organized the program of bible study and main message separately in order to teach the word of God deeply by asking questions and answer them. So that they can grow in faith and in the knowledge of the grace of God. That Sunday, pastor Peter gave the bible study in the church about the spiritual gifts in the church from Ephesians 4:11-12, in order for people to grow and understand their roles and responsibilities in the church in order to edify the body of Christ.
The main message was shared by teacher Ivy. The Bible is the book of Christian faith which explained the plans of God for our lives and his redemptive plans for us in order to inherit His kingdom. The word of God is the power of God unto salvation which has hidden information in it. We need to interpret and revealed the truth. So we need to concentrate and focus much on the spiritual things of the word of God because they are eternal.
We need to identify if we are the children of God or we still need to be born again. As true believers of Christ, we should be different in thinking because we have a high level of understanding about our purpose in life. We understand that there is a deep life than this physical life that is eternal. Unbelievers seek to eat, dress well and that’s why they work so hard in order to achieve. But we need to shift from this kind of living for we don’t live to eat but we eat to live.
We need to seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness as our first priority of our living instead of wanting to be famous and wealthy. God wants us to seek Him first and everything we do shall glorify His name.
