In the New Testament book we call 1 Peter, the Apostle writes, "Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others". Now, Peter is specifically talking about spiritual gifts that we receive from God when we become followers of Jesus. But I think that it can also pertain to the natural talents and abilities we learn as a result of our life and experiences.

Using Your Gifts to Help Others
You may look at others and see how they are able to help others using their talents and wonder how you can help. While others may seem gifted and talented in certain areas, there are other areas where your skills can be useful. Some people have a gift of compassion and helping others, some people are creative and others have hands-on, technical expertise.
You can start by considering what you do for a living, what other people may ask you to help with or even your passions and interests. One thing is for certain - we all need one another in some way or another.

What would happen if you embraced the possibility that the God of the Bible really did create the world and really does care for you?
Meet New People
As human beings, we’re all born with an innate need to know others and to be known. Having healthy relationships is essential to having a full and satisfying life, but not everyone has the kind of positive, supportive, and meaningful relationships they need. Many people are even uncomfortable with the process of meeting new people and making new friends.
We believe that life is better lived in an authentic community of people who appreciate the connection to others, we’ve created a variety of environments that make it easy for you to meet new people and initiate new relationships. Regardless of where you are on your faith journey, you’re welcome to explore, learn and grow with us.Meet People
In the seventeenth century, a famous philosopher and mathematician, Blaise Pascal, encouraged people to make a wager when it came to belief in God. If a person chose to believe in God and God did exist, that person would gain everything (eternal life). If a person chose to believe in God and God did not exist, that person would lose nothing. On the other hand, if a person chose not to believe in God and he was right, he would lose nothing. But if that person did not believe in God and he was wrong- he would lose everything (lose eternal life).
This wager can be said another way:
Based on this logic, Pascal suggested the rational person would choose to believe in God as believing offers a person everything (eternal life) while losing nothing. Wherever you are in your faith journey, would you consider taking Pascal’s wager? If the good God of the Bible exists, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by believing in Him today.
