Giving My Talents To God
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change" (James 1:17 ESV).
The Bible tells us that the body of Christ is made of people with different functions just like the human body parts has different functions.
For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness (Romans 12:3-8 ESV).
Every member of our church is important, and each of us has been endowed with special gifts from the Lord. Many people mistakenly think that the only person in the church with a "gift" or "calling" is the pastor. Make no mistake, Providence co-pastors are very gifted. We love our pastors!
However, they aren't the only gifted people in the church. All of us are gifted, and we can use our gifts and talents to worship the Lord and bring others to Christ. If you have been given the gift of singing, then sing for the Lord. If you have been given the gift of leadership, then work to become a leader in the church.
