Charles Martin: Using Your God-Given Gifts With Grace

In ministry, what is a healthy approach to embracing the unique gifts and voice that God has entrusted to us without overshadowing what God longs to do in us, through us, and even in spite of us? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Charles Martin. Charles is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. In fact, one of his novels was optioned and turned into a major motion picture. Charles is a devoted Christ-follower and a fellow traveler on the pilgrimage of faith. Charles’s most recent book, titled “It Is Finished,” is based on a true story with which we’re all familiar. Together, Charles and Jason look at letting God fully use what is uniquely you while avoiding the temptation to elevate yourself beyond what God desires. What does that balance look like in our lives in ministry? Charles then takes us backstage and shares some honest insights about navigating disappointments, criticism, critiques, and fear.
