HIDING THE TALENT OF GOD

Greetings and blessings to the people of God in the chain of blocks. To speak of talent is to refer to all the gifts that God has given to men; and as for the believers, the talents are supernatural gifts conferred by the Holy Spirit, for the edification of the body of Christ, which is the church.

#

The gift or talent in particular represents the specific role that a believer plays in the Christian community. The function is performed by the grace of God and not by any right or merit of the believer.

#

The gift received by the Holy Spirit has the purpose of sharing and contributing to the development of the community. Talent is not for personal praise. It is not for the individual to receive a particular recognition, but rather for the Lord's church to increase its number and produce a positive impact on the community with which it interacts.

#

It is important to note that each member of the Christian community receives a gift from the Holy Spirit, with the best intention of strengthening unity in the body of Christ.

#

The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12: 7-10:

#

7 But each one is given the manifestation of the Holy Spirit for the purpose of blessing. 8 For the word of wisdom of the Holy Spirit is given to him; to another, word of science according to the same Spirit; 9 to others, faith by the same Spirit; And to another, gifts of healing by the same Spirit. 10 To another, to work miracles; to another, prophecy; to another, discernment of spirits; to another, different genres of language; And on the other hand, the interpretation of languages.

#

The apostle makes it clear that all these gifts are for the purpose of blessing, and that all are given by the Holy Spirit.

#

The gifts are for the benefit of the Lord's church. The Christian must not hide the talent that God has given him.
In Matthew 25: 14-30, the Lord speaks of the parable of the talents, and explains that "the kingdom of heaven is like a man who, coming far, called his servants and gave them his goods."
In this parable, the Lord details that "one gave him five talents, and two others, and another, each according to his ability, and then he left" (Matthew 25: 15).
The first two invested the talents and gained interest, but the third buried him and did not gain interest for his Lord. When the Lord returned, who asked for an account, the first two were congratulated, but the third, his Lord, called him a bad servant and asked them to take away his talent.

#

If God has endowed you with special abilities, then win souls for the kingdom of heaven. Serve God with what He has given you.
