What Are You Doing?
If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. – 1 Peter 4:11 (KJV)
If God has given us an ability, which He has given to each one of us certain talents, abilities and gifts, we should do these things as unto the God. But the key here is to actually use the gifts that we are given.
Most people argue that they use their gifts in the church. Our gifts were never meant to be used in the church building. They were meant to be used to bring people to Christ, to build up the Body of Christ, to further the Kingdom of God.
We cannot do that by just sitting in the pews, waiting on the sinners to come into the church. We show the world Christ through our actions, through our gifts, talents and resources.
Our words aren’t getting through, but our actions will.
