This is the 10:45am Blended Service of the Collierville United Methodist Church on April 22, 2012
7 ‘Ask, and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.
16Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
The New Life in Christ
1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
3 For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgement, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. 4For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, 5so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. 6We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; 7ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; 8the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.
7for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.
