1 Unleashed: Experiencing the Person, Purpose, Provision, and Power of PART 8 Romans 12

2 Spiritual Gifts 1 Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:1-2)

3 Spiritual Gifts 3 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith. 4 For just as we have many members in one body and all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. (Romans 12:3-5)

4 Spiritual Gifts 6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:6-8)

5 The Gift of Giving 8 …he who gives, [do so] with liberality… (Romans 12:8)

6 The Gift of Giving He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need. (Ephesians 4:28)

7 The Gift of Giving 1 Now, brothers, we wish to make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia, 2 that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their generosity. 3 For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, 4 begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints, 5 and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God. (2 Corinthians 8:1-5)

8 The Gift of Giving 36 Thus Joseph, who was also called by the apostles Barnabas (which means son of encouragement), a Levite, a native of Cyprus, 37 sold a field that belonged to him and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet. (Acts 4:36-37) 36 Thus Joseph, who was also called by the apostles Barnabas (which means son of encouragement), a Levite, a native of Cyprus, 37 sold a field that belonged to him and brought the money and laid it at the apostles’ feet. (Acts 4:36-37) In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. She was always doing good works and acts of charity. (Acts 9:36)In Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. She was always doing good works and acts of charity. (Acts 9:36)

9 The Gift of Giving …he who gives, with liberality… (Romans 12:8)

10 The Gift of Giving 6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)

11 The Gift of Giving

12 The Gift of Leading … he who leads [proistêmi], with diligence… (Romans 12:8)

13 The Gift of Leading 1 This saying is trustworthy: “If anyone aspires to be an overseer, he desires a noble work.” 2 An overseer, therefore, must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, self-controlled, sensible, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not addicted to wine, not a bully but gentle, not quarrelsome, not greedy— 4 one who manages [proistêmi] his own household competently, having his children under control with all dignity. 5 (If anyone does not know how to manage [proistêmi] his own household, how will he take care of God’s church?) (1 Timothy 3:1-5, HCSB)

14 The Gift of Leading Deacons must be faithful husbands, managing [proistêmi] their children and their own households competently. (1 Timothy 3:12)Deacons must be faithful husbands, managing [proistêmi] their children and their own households competently. (1 Timothy 3:12) 12 Now we ask you, brothers, to appreciate those who labor among you and lead [proistêmi] you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to regard them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13) 12 Now we ask you, brothers, to appreciate those who labor among you and lead [proistêmi] you in the Lord and admonish you, 13 and to regard them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13)

15 The Gift of Leading he who leads, [do so] with diligence... (Romans 12:8)he who leads, [do so] with diligence... (Romans 12:8)

16 The Gift of Mercy 6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; 7 if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; 8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:6-8)

17 The Gift of Mercy 37 “‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 …‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’” (Matthew 25:37-40)

18 The Gift of Mercy 3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

19 The Gift of Mercy “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” (Matthew 5:7)“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” (Matthew 5:7) When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick. (Matthew 14:14)When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick. (Matthew 14:14)

20 The Gift of Mercy …he who shows mercy, [do so] with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:8).…he who shows mercy, [do so] with cheerfulness. (Romans 12:8). “A pleasing countenance in acts of mercy is a great relief and comfort to the miserable; when they see it is not done grudgingly or unwillingly, but with pleasant looks and gentle words, and all possible indications of eagerness.” – Matthew Henry Serve the Lord with gladness… (Psalm 100:2)Serve the Lord with gladness… (Psalm 100:2)

21 Jesus and the Gifts …He will glorify Me (John 16:14) …He will glorify Me (John 16:14) For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor so that you through His poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor so that you through His poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

22 Jesus and the Gifts “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” (John 16:7)“But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.” (John 16:7)

23 Jesus and the Gifts 10 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 4:10-11)
