Stewardship Thought
January 1, 2019 - "...the Gentiles are co-heirs, members of the same body, and co-partners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the Gospel."   -- Ephesians 3:6.

Today we celebrate that Christ came to all of us, not just the Hebrews. He has given each of us unique gifts. We all have different yet equally valuable roles to play in the Body of Christ. Pray daily and ask God how He wants you to use your gifts so that we may all "be one".
