We think of the parable of the talents as being a financial (responsible with God’s money) or physical talent, (play piano, sing for the Lord). I have come to a radical conclusion. We should be thinking of the Gifts of the Spirit as the talents that God gave us when He left.
Most of us never exercise them, they get buried. Then we have the few, Oral Roberts, RW Shambach, Benny Hinn who outshine the rest of us. They used and multiply their gifts.
The church needs to pay attention. …God wants people to see, know, consider, understand and believe He is and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. (Isaiah 41) That is why He did miracles in Egypt, through Jesus and the disciples. ….Jesus healed all that were afflicted. ..
He gave us the Spirit and the Spirit gave us Gifts. …learn to take them off the shelf. …use the talents.
