God has gifted each one of us who have put our trust in Him with wonderful gifts for a very noble and blessed purpose.
The very purpose of God making us who we are is solely this...
" for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ" Ephesians 4:12 (NKJV)
and are we reaching there? are we equipping the saints of the Lord for His blessed task? are we in any way edifying the body of Christ ?
Normally the giver has no right to advocate the use of his gift and it is at the sole discretion of the recipient to do whatever he/she likes to do with the gift., and thus the gift after having been received with the widest ever smile can be thrown away considering it useless with the full assurance that no adverse consequences for this behavior would follow.
However it is not so with the Lord, we are accountable to Him for all we do with this new life of ours.
" For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil." Ecclesiastes 12:14 (NKJV)
We are thankful to God for having equipped us with His precious gifts and should consider it our privilege and blessing to use them for His glory as He always intended.
Thus let our light shine and let is bring light to others and glory to God, for that is the only purpose of this blessed new life.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
