Happy Tuesday to our amazing Online Community! Prayerfully your week has gotten off to an awesome start! Thanks to everyone who joined us on the prayer line this morning! Remember that we have prayer every Tuesday morning at 6:00 Eastern, and you are always more than welcome to join us!
On Sunday, I continued the “Love is Giving” series, and God spoke to us about how important it is to make ourselves available to Him. Here are your three things to remember:
- What God has given to you is significant. You may not be gifted in the way that someone else is, but God still has need of your gift. There are people who need what you have to offer. As the hands and feet of Jesus, we have a responsibility to show the world who He is by using every gift that has given to us!
- Jesus had to leave the earth, but He entrusted His gifts and talents to us. The only way that the message of Jesus can continue to spread is through His disciples. As modern-day disciples, Jesus entrusted us with time, talent and treasure so that we could further the ministry He began when He walked the earth. This is a great blessing and a great responsibility!
- Whatever you have, you are supposed to use it for the glory of God. God didn’t gift us so that we could sit on those gifts all of our lives. Everything we have been given was given for the sole purpose of glorifying God. God doesn’t get any glory out of us being dormant and not pouring out what He has put in us to give.
As you continue walking with Jesus this week, do a self-assessment of your gifts and talents. Assess the time you’re spending with God. Assess your treasure – see where it is. Is it in heavenly things or temporary earthly things? Remember that the bible says, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21)
Have a great rest of the week! I would LOVE to see you at Bible Study tomorrow! It’s going to be an awesome hour of power! I’ll be back on Friday with three more things to remember. Until then, be blessed and remember that Love is Giving!
