Is a grand degree what qualifies a person for service? Or is it God who qualifies a person? Is the Spiritual gifts and talents always supposed to be used or are the gifts and talents not recognized by the church?
These are things I've been thinking about because it seems that the undeserving are always uplifted and the deserving are put in a corner to serve and not use their talents. Also it appears that it used to be that uneducated people could get ahead but now the doctors of the law and scholars are the ones giving the big talks on revelation and perceptive subjects not the ones who could really make a good difference in this area. Should we honor all the talents and gifts or should we not recognize some gifts and talents that a person is proven to have. Many thoughts on this would be appreciated.
Interesting Question there Andrew, Sadly as I see it we find prestige seems to come well ahead of any recognized talent.
The healing power of Christ's love actually restores and heals and grows.
The Gospel is preached every time we text or chat ,fellowship or engage or help others. Time and time again the Holy Spirit Stamps and Solidifies another human being winning their souls in time and consistency.
Whatever station in life
Whatever education or finances or lack there of ..God is working in you blessing and uplifting others and self.
Without this love. It turns everyone way. Even when they stick around in our life, relationships, work, or church.
HELLO ALL. HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL THAT.
SADLY, IN OUR CHURCHES, WE SEEM TO PLACE PHYSICIANS ABOVE ALL OTHERS, IF THE SDA HAS AN IDOL, IT IS THE PHYSICIANS. SHOULD MY OPINION BE ABOVE OTHERS SIMPLY BECAUSE OF MY PROFESSION? THE BIBLE IN A FEW PLACES STATES THAT GOD HAS NO RESPECT FOR PERSONS.
Andrew happy new year and God bless you all over in 2019 and all the years to come!
I'm totally agree with you. In my church we have that problem. When the elder, deacon of some other then the pastor preach, no one will believe or say something, but when the pastor preach the church will go crazy, every body is shooting amen, amen.
We like to honor people with high degree, and we lose side from the once with the talents.
