"Here I am Lord" - When God cries out asking who will go, who will do the right things, the hard things, the right answer in the Bible is always, "Here I am Lord, send me." God uses the gifts of our time, talents and treasure. God is calling us to use the blessings bestowed upon us to faithfully fulfill our mission to FIND the lost, RELEASE the captive, and DEVELOP disciples of Jesus. Every gift is an investment not only in mission and ministry, but in people.
"The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work”
--2 Corinthians 9:6-8
"In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly."
