Called and Gifted.

Ephesians 4:1-16, Exodus 34-36

Exodus 35:30-31 – “See, the LORD has called by name…and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship.”

Lord Jesus Christ, you are the head and I am a member of your body.  You have called be by name; I am yours.  You have poured out your Spirit on me generously for faith, for service, for just the right role and place in your body.  I am not missing any skill that I need to do the work you have given me to do.  I am able, by your Spirit, to do what you want me to do in your own body.  I am not lacking any good thing.  Help me, Lord, to do that work to which you have called me. Help me to do it generously, freely, boldly, gladly.  Keep pouring out your Spirit on me that I am do this good work to which you have called me and for which you have gifted me.  Amen.
