You can do something. I know that because God made you and He did not make you empty but created you with certain skills and with the ability to acquire new skills. Therefore, exercise them among your brethren in Christ, as Peter said,

If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen (1 Peter 4.11). 

What can you do? Do it. Do you want to face God at the Judgment, having failed to do what He enabled you to do? Why not glorify Him now through your abilities?

Questions:

  • What can you do for people in the church?
  • Have you developed any new skills?
