Giving God Back Our Talent

Talk 2 : Giving God Back Our Talent
CFC Music Ministry STAR Series

It is essential that we see ourselves as having been gifted and blessed by God with extraordinary talent to make music, have the heart for it and warm others’ lives through it. All talent comes from God. He is the source of all our personal gifts. Whether we are able to speak well, or write well, or relate openly and effectively with people, all these are blessings that hail from the Almighty. It is part of God’s plan that we be such. It is imperative therefore that we seek God’s plan for us and see those plans to reality.

The talents we have received, whether to sing, play an instrument, conduct the music of the choir or the band, all come from God and are part of His grand design for our personal lives. Our being leaders of the Music Ministry should therefore be seen in this light. It is first and foremost, a service to God and our being here is a call to service. We are to lay our talents here for His use. We are to offer these gifts to enable others to know Him more deeply, to worship Him more sincerely and to heed His call in their lives more fully. This is a great responsibility and it all starts with us fully surrendering to God the very talents, gifts and blessings that He has given us.
