12 Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw-
13 each one's work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done. - 1 Corinthians 3:12-1

Judgment Day is not about what I’ve done wrong in my life - that will all be burned up in the fire. It’s about what I’ve done for Him. But it’s not just about what I do for Him, it’s what I do with what He has given me. 

God has give each one of us different spiritual gifts. To some He has given the gift of leadership, to others teaching, to some He has given the gift of mercy or service, still others He has given the gift of knowledge or wisdom or faith.  He has given us these spiritual gifts for the purpose of bringing Him glory. 

Our talents are the capacity He has given to us to share the gospel with the world. We all have gifts and abilities that are unique to us, we have all been set into a certain financial position and been given different dispositions - some of us are more compassionate and creative, some of us are more driven and organized, some of us are outgoing, some are thoughtful. We were even all planted in the location and families we live in for a very specific reason. 

We are all unique and we were all designed to be different so that we fulfill a very specific purpose. The problem is that so many of us take our gifts and abilities and use them for our own advantage. The only reason He has given any of these talents to us is that He expects us to use them to further His kingdom. That's it. From our level of intelligence to the house we live in - it was all purposefully given to us so because He has a plan for how we're going to carry out the work of the kingdom.

What have you done with what He has given you - that’s what will be in front of you on Judgment Day. Overwhelmed this morning by all that He has given me, and deeply desiring to give my gifts away for His glory. 


Press on ~ you are loved 💗
