Discover Your Full Potential
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven, (Matthew 5:14-16).
“God is not concerned as much with your outward appearance as He is with our inward availability.” That reality plays out in so many areas of our lives. The more we make ourselves available to God, the more He uses us. The more He uses us, the more we experience the fulfilled life God wants us to live. But that availability isn't just about our time. We must also make our talents available to God.
We are all gifted by God. Each of us has unique abilities and talents. But He doesn't give us those, so we will keep them to ourselves. God wants us to use our talents for His glory. And there’s no greater place to do that than in the local church. Whatever you are gifted at, the reality is that your talent will never reach its potential until you begin to use it for God. Are you actively using your gift in the local church?
Thank God for the gifts and abilities He has given to you. Pray for the discipline and courage to step up and begin using them for His glory in the church!
