3. Because sgs help us use our spiritual gifts (1 Cor 12:7).

1 Corinthians 12-14 has a lot to say about spiritual gifts. God gives spiritual gifts to all Christians (12:7). The unique nature of spiritual gifts is that they are all for the purpose of using to encourage other Christians. Unfortunately, not everyone can practice their spiritual gift each Sunday morning, but sgs provide a context in which you can use your spiritual gifts in a small, casual, safe environment. Some may use the gift of music, while others practice hospitality. Seeing others gifted in these ways, while they are serving others with their gifts, models gospel living to others of us who might not be so gifted in those areas and allows us to benefit from the special fragrance of heaven you carry. So, sgs also provide a context in which you can use the gifts God has given you. Another part of being a spiritual body with real fellowship is caring for one another.
