“From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.” Ephesians 4:16 (NIV)

One of the things that you must understand is that you are not in church to warm the bench. God does not make mistakes. He will not send you to an assembly where you have nothing to their assignment. Every church has a unique role, so for you to belong to that church, there is something in you that God expects you to use towards that ministry fulfilling purpose. So, my question is: Are you playing the part or warming the bench? Are you sitting on the edge and watching your pastor and leaders struggle? Or are you a son or a daughter of consolation, contributing your quota to see that the assignment is done?

One of the things I am so convinced of is the fact that every church has all the resources it needs to carry out its assignment. If everyone plays his or her part, there will not just be enough but more than enough in the body of Christ? Look at the church in the wilderness. When it was time to build, they made a call and it got to a point they had to send a word to Moses saying “stop the people they have already brought more than enough.

May we get back to those days where everyone will roll their sleeves and contribute their quota so that the church will not only have enough but more than enough and can be a blessing, not only to members but also to their world.

What talent do you have? How well are you using it? Do you know that there is a consequence of lack of use of your talent? It is my prayer that God will help everyone to put their gifts to use for the furtherance of the gospel In Jesus’ name.
