Do not be afraid to work; do not be afraid to sacrifice your time to the Lord! II

Greetings to you, dear friends! Grace and peace to you from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ!Yesterday we talked about the fact that we should not be ashamed of what the Lord has given us nor despise our talents.Don’t be ashamed of what you have. God has given you those particular talents for you to multiply them, not to hide them. Do not waste your strength on hiding from your calling. Let your talents be visible to others. The talents you possess do not actually belong to you; they belong to the Lord. So, if you are ashamed to use them, it means you are ashamed of the Lord Himself.
“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of the holy angels” (Luke, 9:26).
We mustn’t be ashamed of God and what He has delivered to us.Sinners usually are not ashamed to publically demonstrate what they are able to do, how shameless they are; but we – being the children of God – are way too shy. Sinners openly display all kinds of filth, but we keep silent because we are too shy. It is not right! We should boldly proclaim God’s message.Today we once again will talk about the three servants from Jesus’ parable of talents. We already saw that when the first two servants received their talents, they saw an opportunity they did not have before. They were not afraid to work hard; they valued the time they had, since they realized that their master could come back any time and they had trained themselves for this assignment. The third servant though was ashamed of his talent delivered to him by his master; he did not find it special or valuable and he did not use this as an opportunity for growth.Based on the actions of these three servants, God wants to teach us something:* We must prepare ourselves, study and grow.* We shouldn’t waste our time.* We should work hard.* We shouldn’t be ashamed of using our gifts in ministry.* We should use our talents however small it seems.* We should stop looking for excuses.In this life, EVERYTHING we have grows when we use and apply it.May this word become the beginning of marvellous changesfor you .Let’s continue tomorrow!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
