      What’s Your Job?

      1Pet. 4:10 ΒΆ God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of
      spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God?s generosity can flow through
      you. NLT  

      What are you good at? Nine times out of ten, what you are good at doing can
      be used for the Kingdom of God. Your gift that you possess can richly add to
      a ministry that is spreading the Gospel. It would be a shame for you to be
      talented in an area and only use it for money, or for your secular job. God
      is the giver of good and perfect things, not the enemy, so you should be
      using your gift and talents, not only for your secular job, but also to
      build the Kingdom of God. Many times we spend years in prayer over our
      purpose and our God given plan to find what it is that God wants us to do
      for his benefit. But if you look into the Word of God, you will find that
      the purpose He has for us is built into us from our conception! Look at God
      choosing the 12 disciples.
      Each one he chose had an occupation that was used for the Kingdom to benefit
      from. The fisherman, became fishers of men. The Tax collector became Jesus’
      accountant. Even Jesus, who was a carpenter by trade, became the chief
      builder of the Church of God! So, what are you good at?  

      Why are you just giving your services for money and not using it to benefit the
      Kingdom?
      Don’t you know that you could add so much to a ministry, a church, or a non
      profit helps organization? I know sometimes we see feeding the poor,
      clothing the homeless, or street preaching as the only true means of
      evangelism and missions but everyone in a ministry, church, or helps
      organization is important. And the lives that we touch are credited to
      each and every active member. You are a Christian, so use your gifts and
      abilities to
      help others. Even when there is no money involved, you should still want
      to sow your gift and talents to bless others and God will always credit you
      for being a blessing.  

      Suggested Reading: Jer. 1:5, 1Cor. 12:31, 1Cor. 14:12, Heb. 9:9
