sermon: Many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen (Part Eleven)


Given 27-Jul-19; 64 minutes

Description: (hide)

The Parable of the Talents emphasizes the need for diligence in using the gifts of God. Our abilities and skills did not come to us naturally but are gifts from God. We never receive any more gifts than we can use, but, if we neglect to use them, God will give them to another who will put them to responsible use, while judging us as unprofitable. Abilities differ from person to person. We must never compare ourselves to one another, but instead remain diligent in carrying out God's work. The Parable of the Talents teaches that: (1.) God does not endow His servants with equal talents. (2.) God expects us to use our talents to His glory and in the service of others. (3.) God's servants strengthen their gifts by using them. (4.) God will judge His servants on how well they use their talents. (5.) Sinners look on God as a hard taskmaster. (6.) God judges people for neglecting to do right. (7.) Those who abuse their talents face severe judgment by God. Because judgment is now upon the House of God, we should entrust our lives to Him, using our gifts to work diligently for Him now.
