Where do I fit in?

Fellow children of God, Jehovah has given all of us chances to serve himself! Every time you have a chance to help a lost soul, or especially, a sister or brother in the Faith, that chance is your Gift from the Lord! Even if it's only giving a drink of cold water to a little child, you will get a reward that will last forever.

We should freely give what we have. All that we have has been given to us freely by God. Do you have the ability to open your mouth and speak? Where is your prayer out loud, everywhere, and at all times? Where is your preaching of the Gospel, or reading of the Bible? How about giving thanks, or joyfully singing hymns? Men, why aren't you all Teaching the Word? You're a bunch of chickens! You can't be stopped from blabbing about the Super Bowl, but you blush to whisper the name of your redeemer!

"I'm not good enough!" doesn't excuse you. Being the Chief of Sinners didn't excuse Paul. Yes, be made right with your brother first, but, please, don't forget to come back again afterwards and offer your gift! "I don't have the ability!" How convenient that seems to be! You have the tremendous abilities to do very many things that you want to do, but you find yourself unable to lift a finger to the vision and calling the Lord has given you for His Kingdom!
