SERVE THE LORD
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.
1 Peter 4:10 NLT
If God has given you something, use it for the benefit of all. When God has given you something is up to you to use it whether for His glory or for your own benefit. We have many people who are talented; but they are too selfish to share what they have with others.
Some have discovered that they can make a lot of money through their gifts, so they are using their gifts to do so. Others start exercising their gifts in the Church and when they see they have got enough audience and appreciation. They tend to shift to the world in seek of fame and money.
If God has given you anything use it that it may bless others even 20 years from now. If you are singer, sing that your songs may help many inherit the kingdom of heaven. Don't sing that you may be known or get money out of it. If God wants you to be famous then He will make you in His time. Serve the Lord with all of your heart and you will see the blessings of the Lord flowing in your way.
This morning, I want to encourage you to serve the Lord. Serving the Lord in your area of influence is true worship before God. Learn to act according to the commandments of the Lord in your work place, family, friends, Church and all areas of your life. Then you will be worshiping our Lord God with your life; and He going to bless the works of your hands.
Don't allow the spirit of selfish to have a room in you, don't be arrogant and think you know all things. Learn to walk humbly before God and your fellow men. Do the will of the Lord in your life and allow the Lord to take care the rest.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
LORD God, thank You for your salvation that if found in Christ Jesus. Lord help me to serve You with all of my heart. Help me to treat others as I love to be treated. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
