If we seek to glorify God, we must do so by using the gifts He has given us to minister to others. "As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever" (I Peter 4:10-11, NIV, NKJV).
Let's take to heart the admonition given to Archippus, "Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord and fulfill it" (Colossians 4:17). In the end, "each of us will give account of ourselves to God" (Romans 14:12) whether we have fulfilled His will for our lives. Are you ready to do the work that God has created you to do? Will you hear Him say, "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things" (Matthew 25:21)?
