1 Pet 4:11 (NIV)Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
1 Pet 4:11 and 12 (TPT)Every believer has received grace gifts, so use them to serve one another as faithful stewards of the many-colored tapestry of God’s grace.
For example, if you have a speaking gift, speak as though God were speaking His words through you. If you have the gift of serving, do it passionately with the strength God gives you, so that in everything God alone will be glorified through Jesus Christ. For to Him belong the power and the glory forever throughout all ages! Amen.
1) It is not easy to keep your apron on – do it anyway!
2) Teamwork makes the dream work!
Gal 5:13 (NIV)… serve one another humbly in love.
Gal 5:14 (NIV)For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbour as yourself.”
3) Jesus never took the Apron off.
Matt 20:25-28 (TPT)“…Kings and those with great authority in this world rule oppressively over their subjects, like tyrants. But this is not your calling. You will lead by a completely different model. The greatest one among you will live as the one who is called to serve others, because the greatest honour and authority is reserved for the one with the heart of a servant. For even the Son of Man did not come expecting to be served but to serve and give his life in exchange for the salvation of many.”
Acts 19:11-12 (TPT)God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.
