You have one life to live unto Jesus, so why not give your best and live to your full potential? When we understand God’s grace that was freely given to us, we will maximize the gifts He has given us. Live to your full potential.
I haven’t been the best at stewarding the gift of music and playing the keyboard unto Jesus, however, God has been reminding me that He’s given me this gift out of His grace and has a purpose for it.
Just as I have given my best in the area of learning the Word of God and teaching, I want to give my best in ALL other areas of my life.
We are called to be prepared in and out of season (2 Timothy 4:2). God’s grace is given to us not to slack but to step into all He has planned for our lives.
Some of us are even called to serve under the fivefold ministry. Maybe it’s not your season to step into being a pastor, prophet, or other ministry offices, but what are you doing today to steward the call of God in your life for when that time does come?
“But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:7, 11-12).
Let us use our time wisely as we know our time here on earth is short. When our lives end and this world passes away, only Jesus will endure forever and ONLY HE will matter. There is nothing more important than knowing Jesus and living our lives to fulfill His purpose for us.
We have one life to live for Jesus, why not live our best for Him and use our time to seek Him? We are not going to have another opportunity in the flesh to know Jesus and live for Him. No one also knows their last day.
Psalm 39:5 says, “You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.”
How can you better steward your time to seek Him and do what He is calling you to do?
Your life is not your own. The abundant life comes as we give our time to Jesus and use it however He wants us to.
We have all been given gifts by God’s grace to serve others and this is not something we deserve.
We didn’t sign up and train for the gifts that God has given us. He has simply given them to us as an opportunity to serve His people and to do good works to fulfill His plans.
There is nothing more fulfilling we can do except to do what God created us to do.
“If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly” (Romans 12:7-8).
The enemy will try to rob us of using the gifts God has given us by distraction and sin.
Let’s be faithful in loving Jesus and using our gifts with His power to minister unto Him and His people. It was never optional to use the gifts God has given us, but required. God gave each of us gifts to use for His purposes.
It will require our sacrifice to use the gifts He has given us, but the reward of obeying God and serving His people will be all worth it.
How we use our time matters to God.
How can you better steward the gifts God had given you this year? Will you ask God what gift He longs you to step into in this season and give of yourself to it?
We get to make an eternal impact and see God move through the beautiful gifts He has given us. So remember, live to your full potential.
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for the grace that You so freely gave to us. May we always walk with you and live to our full potential every single day.
