are we making excuses?

July 16, 2013
2 Timothy 1:6 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you…

We hear a lot about spiritual gifts and how if the church is the body of Christ we should all do our part in it so that the “body” can function at its best potential. We hear it but we often think it doesn’t apply to us. Or we must because we ignore it. We know we do. I’m not talking about those times in our lives when we truly are bogged down with our family lives and must take a break from serving with our church family, note I said serving there is never a good reason to stop associating with them! However, what does you life look like as a whole? Is the majority of it full of using your gift to further God’s work here and to help your church body or is it full of excuses of why you can’t? Only we can really answer these questions truthfully and we can even fool others and ourselves some of the time, but we can’t ever fool God. He knows if we give to Him all that we can or if we don’t. It should convict us to know that.
