Pastor Mary Speaks on Personal Development and Growth There is the need for brethren to work out a predetermined, very deliberate and consistent plan for growth because growth does not happen in a vacuum. It must be conceived, designed, worked out, and followed through. This was the submission of the Zonal Director MidWest Zone of Loveworld nation, Pastor Mary Owase during a presentation yesterday at the ongoing 2019 International Pastors and Partners Conference (IPPC). According to Pastor Mary, personal growth is essential in the life of a child of God because it manifests in virtually every aspect of that individual’s life. She called on the brethren to invest in their lives and make personal growth a top priority because it will by extension rub off on Church growth. She told the congregation that someone who has achieved personal growth stands a better chance of fulfilling God's calling and vision in his or her life, adding that “even though calling is by the act and grace of God. You're to work it out. Fulfill your ministry without reproach. A man can't give what he doesn't have”, she added.

DID THE CHURCH USE YOU? You served in the media arm, learnt how to record, capture and edit, now you edit for nollywood and make money from it... *Did church use you?* You served in the choir, you were corrected severally by your choir director who almost gave up on you till you gradually started learning to sing, sustain keys, compose songs even do the slurs and dynamics.....now you have released your album....! *Did church use you?* You served in the sound department, learnt to produce good sound, it has become your skill and you even make money from it... *Did church use you?* You served a Pastor, from cleaning his shoes and carrying his Bible to becoming his assistant pastor, now you have your own work, you're impacting your world and fulfilling your God-given purpose and destiny... *did church use you?* Please people let's get it right! It is wrong to say "the church is using you! the church is using me!".... the tune of some unwise advisers and brethren. In the first place it is always a privilege to be used of God. *God does not use you and dump you. He uses you, builds you, trains you and makes you what He talks about. You can't be useful until you are used of Him. it is the process of being used that makes you useful to Him and to your world for Him. Your service in the church does not improve God, it only improves you. So Be guided, Be wise and Be Smart. Whether you are available or not, the work must be done. Your availability to serve is for your own Enrichment, Enhancement and Enlargement. I encourage every worker/steward in the church; keep doing what you' are instructed to do. God is aware of your service. * Count it a great privilege to be used by God, and want to be used over and over and over again. Love what you do for the Lord and in the Lord. Do it with all your heart, with joy and gladness. Thank the Lord for the privilege to serve and be useful in God's house. Remember He gave you His Life to make you His Kind - An Associate of the God-Kind. The God-Kind never speaks of being used. God bless you.
