Talented Disciples

"And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand....’ Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops." (Matthew 10:7, 27 NKJV) It doesn't matter how much you have, what you wear, or even what you do for a living. In the end when your body dies and you go before God, what He wants to know is who did you help, how did you change your world, and what efforts you made to bring people to God. The Holy Bible teaches us that we are to go out and preach. That doesn't necessarily mean we have to stand at a pulpit and give a sermon. What it means is that we are to share the word of God with others, tell them what He has done for us, what He can do for them, and that God loves them. God wants us to tell them that if they truly repent He will forgive them, wiping their slate clean, and give them a fresh start. God wants us to teach others how to come to Him. And, He wants us to use our unique talents and gifts to do this. Some by writing, others by music or art. Some even have special gifts with certain age groups. Whatever our gifts and talents, God wants us to utilize them to "go out into the world... ." Love, Beau
