We have all been given different gifts and talents by God, these gifts and talents have been given so that we can give him the all the glory in their usage.
Unfortunately there are many gifted and talented people in the world that are using what God has given them, to feed their ego and their pocket.
God’s ultimate goal is that the whole world comes to a knowledge of him through Jesus and the way he is going to do that is through people.
2Pe 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
It is possible to be gifted and not even recognize your gift, sometimes other people recognize the gift in you first. A gift not utilized is useless to the person gifted and also useless to God. Also a gift not being utilized in the right way is useless to the Kingdom and destructive to the person gifted.
This is why when a person gets born again and their spiritual eyes open up, their gifting and purpose have a new sense of direction. If they have a gift for singing, they use if for Praise & Worship. If they have a gift of communication, they use it to teach or preach. If they have a gift of creativity, they use it to establish new ways of proclaiming the message of Jesus e.g through art and sculpture etc.
We are all part of the build of Christ and as sure we all have a role to play and no should think their role is any less important:
1Co 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.
1Co 12:15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1Co 12:16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
1Co 12:17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
1Co 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1Co 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
1Co 12:28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
1Co 12:29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
1Co 12:30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
1Co 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
The greatest gift we can all operate in is love because if we operate effectively in love, that will feed into all of the other areas of gifting we have, so that God can be glorified.
We live in a very selfish world with selfish attitudes and these attitudes cannot understand why the children of God do the things that they do. To them it is stupid and does not make sense. This is just a bi-product of being spiritual blind and a spiritual blind person can never reach their full potential in their gifting because their gift is not be used effectively:
1Co 2:14 A person who isn’t spiritual doesn’t accept the things of God’s Spirit, for they are nonsense to him. He can’t understand them because they are spiritually evaluated.
Many times when people are trying to discover what their calling is or God’s plan for their life is, God’s answer is the same as what he told Moses:
Exo_4:2 “What’s that in your hand?” the Lord asked him.
Moses answered, “A staff.”
God used Moses’ rod to demonstrate his power and he will use your gift in the same way!
Exo 14:15 Then the Lord told Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelis to move out!
Exo 14:16 You are to raise your staff, stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it, so the Israelis may go into the middle of the sea on dry land.
So what o you have in your hand?
Parallel Business Principles
Whatever project or business a person is doing there will be an opportunity to use your gifts and talents as you engage with it. The problem occurs when a person thinks their gifts and talents are not good enough, because the end result is inactivity.
A person with a wrong perception will always end up with wrong actions, this is why you have gifted potential praise and worship leaders at the top of the billboard charts.
You have potential leaders in industry, stuck behind a desk simply because they do not recognize their gift or they are fearful of stepping out.
In Reliv you have potential Ambassadors who because of a lack of belief in their own gifting either leave the business or operate way below their potential because of in-activity.
If people truly understood what they had in their hands with Reliv, they would truly be more active in building, and it would just become second nature to incorporate it around what ever else they do, without intimidation from external nativity.
