We each receive a gracious divine endowment.

In St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, he tells us that “We are stewards of God’s grace and are co-partners in the promise of Jesus through the Gospel.” (Ephesians 13:2-3)

To be true stewards of God’s grace we must understand not only the grace given to every believer, but also the unique gifting and calling of the Holy Spirit for each of us.

We each are in Christ and should cultivate our place of service to Him. When this becomes real to us, the importance of the various positions to serve the Body of Christ will become easier for us to recognize.

Each of us has received a gift, a particular spiritual talent, a gracious divine endowment to use as God’s faithful stewards. May God continue to bless our parish and our families with His abundant grace in the New Year.

God bless,
Deacon John
