When the spiritual gifts are operating in a congregation to equip it for various Christian ministries, it is the mighty God who is at work. He is the one who is working all things in all. . . . As a boy stopping by a construction site with its huge cranes hoisting steel girders into place, I frequently saw the sign, "Men at Work." It was exciting. However, any time you encounter a church that is fulfilling its mission in the world, you have God at work. There is no greater excitement than being a part of a fellowship where this is taking place.
- Jack W. MacGorman, The Gifts of the Spirit (Broadman Press: Nashville, 1974)
When good things are happenings in the life of your church or your ministry, never forget this. Remind others. Point out where God is at work. Give God the glory. Rejoice.
As it is written in Psalm 115:1:
Not to us, Lord, not to us
but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.
May it be so.
