I hope you're not sitting on your God given gifts

Rather than sitting on your God given talents and gift and waiting on someone to "ordain" you with some title to begin your operation of them. You need to be operating in your gift NOW!!!!!

There are many folks trying to discover their position in life, however the talents and gifts that God has given you to assist them with are laying wast, while they're suffering unnecessarily. How long will you sit under that dormant, lifeless, riddle with tradition Ministry, while the folks that God has assigned to your anointing wander about aimlessly and quite possibly being hurled into a Christless hell. Make no mistake these folks blood will be on your hand as a result of your inactivity.

God has been calling and prompting you to begin excising the gifts and talents he's given you, but as usual you're quite satisfied with adhering to regular church tradition while under the assumption that once you follow those traditions you're in right standing with God. Here is what scripture says about those of you sitting on your gifts and talents and believing it's okay:

"For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their (sonship)." Romans 8:19. Creation, mankind is desperately waiting on you to get it together so that they can be delivered and advanced.

Do you know what your gifts and talents are? Are your spiritual leaders on a quest in assisting you with discovering those gifts and talents? Are you being assigned by  your church leadership in the areas of ministry where your gifts benefits most? Are you sitting under a dictator like leadership that is only interested in tradition and the Pastor is the only one that can mount the pulpit to preach, while the God given talents of the members go to waste?

You were not sent to your church by God to sit on your gifts. In fact your leaders aught to have spiritually recognize your God given talent and began the process of training you and eventually deploying you in the area of ministry that will advance the kingdom of God in the earth. Romans 8:19 can not be achieved if you're sitting under an egotistic oppressive leader that have misplaced the purpose of being a Shepard over the sheep or you just decided to make the decision to sit on your gifts and talents.

I promise you, the day of reckoning will come which of course is the day of Judgement and many folks are under the misguided belief that the day of judgement will be primarily about God judging sin as we know it. On the contrary, according to Matthew 25:13-30. It is interesting to know that in this parable the servant that decided not to use his God given talent was labeled as a WICKED and SLOTHFUL servant and eventually cast into outer darkness.

Now, isn't it surprising that there is no scriptual evidence in this particular chapter where this servant fornicated, lied, committed adultery, stole or participated in any sin that would have warranted his end result? However, his sin was the disabling, inactive, non-use and procrastination of the use of his talent, with the purpose of benefiting others. Have you ever been taught by your religious leaders that no matter how holy you may appear to be or claim to be and by extension not participating in any known sin does not negate the fact that the non use of your God given talents and gifts could place you in an eternity you never prepared for wile on earth? Yes you sing in the choir, but is singing your gift? Yes you love to preach or teach but are you in the right calling or this is where you want to be because of the prestige and lime light it brings to you?

This is divine revelation my friend and it is not by chance you have read this article to its end. Ask God to reveal to you what gifts and talents he's given you. Along with asking God to place you in an environment that will recognize and train you in what God has called you to do with the sole intent of deploying you in the right area or ministry.

I will end with this, it is frequently said in religious circles that what God has given you no man can take from you, but lets compare this misleading statement with what scripture has to say, "So take the talent away from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will be furnished richly so that he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have will be taken away" Matthew 25:28-29. Now, will you believe man or God?

Read the word for yourself, study the word for yourself, seek understanding of your purpose and where God has called you to be. At the end of the day you can not blame no one but yourself for not multiplying what God has invested in you!
