The Bible has much to say about gifts, and the book of Corinthians describes spiritual gifts given by God to people, for the benefit of other people.
But in the book of Ephesians it talks of other gifts, and these gifts are people themselves. We are talking about apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers and evangelists. Those in ministry are gifts to the body of Christ.
Taking this one step further, because we the people of peace have been called into this apostolic call, along with John Alley, we also are a gift to the body of Christ.
So given that our lives are to bless others, we should be mindful of how we live, how we love one another, of our support for the apostolic message. Let us resolve to pray, to be involved in every activity our church does, to listen to John Alley and put into practice what he shares, and to love other Christians. In doing these things, we will enhance the gift of our lives that is given to the Body of Christ and bring glory to God.
