In the spirit of the Soul Train Scramble Board, we present the Jesus Saves Scramble Board. When we unscramble "TGIF," we get the word "GIFT" - Jesus Christ is our Perfect Gift (John 3:16). He died for our sins. "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:24). Additionally, God has given believers at least one spiritual gift for the work of ministry (1 Peter 4:10-11).
There are words, "I," and "FIT" and "IT." From "TGIF" comes this sentence, "I FIT GIFT" or "GIFT: I FIT IT." God doesn't make mistakes. You fit the gift(s) God has given you! The mistake that we make as Christians is we don't stir up our gifts (2 Tim. 1:6).
There is "FIT" - The Word of God is the foundation of our relationship with God. His sheep know His voice because we study to show ourselves approved (2 Timothy 2:15, 19). We "GIT FIT" by attending Sunday school, Bible Study, and small groups! " Also, we must "GIT FIT" physically, too through exercise. How can we reach our purpose if we can't read, write, and reach........our toes!? "Git fit!"
From "TGIF" we get the word "FIG." Jesus cursed the fig tree because it did not bear fruit (Matt. 21:18-21). Figs generally appear on fig trees in February, followed by leaves, which are not formed until late Spring. Jesus cursed the tree because it was well past fruit-bearing season, yet it still unproductive. It is February. Is there spiritual fruit on your tree? The Bible states in Luke 13:8, "And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down." Let's do what God requires and bear much fruit (Gal. 5:22).
From "TGIF" is phonetically the word -- "GIFT-IT." Christians have been given Spiritual Gifts for the work of ministry. We are not saved to sit, but to serve. Ephesians 2: 10 (HCSB) states, "For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them."
After you have meditated on this, hopefully, you will say, "I GIT IT!" I am "GIFT-IT!" So praise God for your spiritual gifts and fruit! I praise Him for all the gifts He has given you and me! You are GIFT-IT!
