Description

Three friends whose lives needed a jolt... An earthquake that struck without warning... A supernatural gifting of mysterious powers...

The Gifted is one of Terri Blackstock's most intriguing novels. A massive natural disaster leads to an even more earth-shaking supernatural transformation in the lives of three friends who have no idea why they've been spared or infused with these distinct gifts.

One thing is certain...the earthquake was just the warm-up for what lies ahead.

  1. Merriam Webster's Dictionary defines "ministry" as "a person or thing through which something is accomplished." Applying that definition to the Christian faith, I would add that Christian ministry is "a person or thing through which something is accomplished to further Christ's kingdom." What have you done lately to further the kingdom of Christ?
  2. In your church, are there two groups--those who serve and those being served? Which group are you in?
  3. What are some excuses people use for not getting involved in ministry?
  4. Some believe the paid ministers in your church are the ones who should do all the work in furthering the Kingdom. Read Ephesians 4:11-12. What does Paul say the ministerial staff are supposed to do? Who is supposed to do the actual "work of service"?
  5. List the attributes of those in your church who seem to do everything. For instance, are they compassionate? Are they merciful? Do they have special skills? What makes them better suited for ministry than other? Are they really better suited, or are they just more willing?
  6. Read Romans 12, then list the gifts in this passage. Do your gifts fit into any of these categories?
  7. What crises or trials in your life might have prepared you for helping others?
  8. What would a "spiritual triage" look like in your church?
  9. Are there examples in your church, or in you area of ministry, where you've seen your fruit bearing fruit?
  10. What attributes in your personality or skill sets could help further the kingdom of Christ?
  11. At the end of your life, what would you like to have accomplished? Write an obituary of your life, the way you'd like for it to be read. Then ask God to help you live that kind of life.
