We all, as Christians, will be held responsible for how we used the talents that God has given to us…
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Glorify God in Body and Spirit
19 Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Use the talents God has given you
“Use It,” by Bishop Noel Jones…: http://subspla.sh/7f20342]
If you are alive, then know that God has a plan and a purpose for your life (Jer 29:11).
By virtue of the fact that we are alive and have been placed on this earth, by God, it then follows that we each have been given certain gifts and talents.
As we read in Genesis, in the beginning God the Father spoke everything into existence, by the Word of His mouth (who is Jesus), and when it says that He created Adam, it says that “the LORD God formed Adam from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and Adam became a living soul” (Gen 2:7).
God has placed a seed inside of every life form and plant that He made, so that it may produce after its kind.
He also has placed a seed inside of man, and along with that He has placed in man the ability that he might use his God given gifts and talents, so that man, having been made in the image and likeness of God, that we might also be a creative force in the earth.
None of us are here to take up space, and this is where it all starts.
First of all, it is up to each one of us to first obey the Gospel’s message, receive forgiveness for our sins and be reconciled back into God’s family.
Having now made peace with God, by accepting the propitious sacrifice of His only begotten Son – Jesus – on Calvary’s cross (John 3:16), we are now what the Bible calls born-again (John 3:3).
This means that each of us, through Jesus’ sacrifice and our acceptance of that sacrifice by faith, we are now given access and relationship with the one who is both the Source and Author of our lives.
It also mean that after having received Jesus as our Savior, we must now make Him Lord over our life, as He cannot be our Savior without also being our Lord.
It is God’s purpose and design in all of this that we each be conformed into the image of His Son (Rom 8:29); and that we be about our Father’s business, using our gifts and talents to spread the Gospel and make disciples of all nations.
Come join the Adventure!
Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
