What God Expects

By   •   July 24   •   Topics: ,

What God expects, and all God expects, is that we dedicate completely all of our talents and gifts to Him. That is the meaning of the parable of the talents in Matthew, chapter 25. Read this parable, and you will see that we are always rewarded because of our faithfulness. You can be just as faithful as anyone and have the commendation of the Lord. Take the one talent you have and invest it in eternal things. Some talented people lose their reward because they do things to be seen of men. Some untalented people lose their reward because they fail to dedicate what they have, because it is not noticed by men. Both have sinned equally.

Prayer for the day

Let me not be concerned with the praise of men, but may my talent be completely yielded to You, Lord Jesus.

    Thank you Mr. Billy Graham. I am giving all to God now when I surely believe that He is in control. He has created me so interesting that people either hate or love me. I myself is not so fond of this spotlight on my person, but it is the will of God, and He has everything under control. There is gonne be a great change were I live between different races.

    2) Memorizing scripture equips us to witness more effectively to the lost; memorizing scripture enables us to more effectively exhort & encourage other believers; memorizing scripture makes the revealed will of our YHWH God the meditation of our hearts; memorizing the promises of scripture will enable us to stand strong when faced w/ end-time trials & catastrophes.
