Hoosiers . . . Using Your Gifts
By: Jason Cruise

hoosiersIn the movie Hoosiers, Gene Hackman plays a high school basketball coach in the famed hoops state of Indiana. He encounters a world class player named Jimmy. There's only one problem ... Jimmy will not play on the team.

About 26 minutes into the movie, Hackman meets him on a small outdoor court. Instead of persuading him to play, he tells him that he has a gift; but, it's up to him to decide to use it. Hackman then says, "I don't care whether you play on the team or not."

POINT - All believers have spiritual gifts, but it's up to us to put them into use for God's Kingdom work.
