Colossians 4:17 And say to Archippus, Take heed to the ministry which thou hast received in the Lord, that thou fulfil it.
Great advice for any of us. Paul tells Archippus that God has given him a ministry. Then he challenges him to do what God gave him to do.
Every one of us have special talents and abilities that we are to exercise for the Lord Jesus Christ. Obviously, I am talking to born again Christians. Those who have placed their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.
God has given you a ministry. You should be actively fulfilling, doing, living out what He gave you to do.
So our application for today comes in a series of questions:
Do you know what He wants you to do?
Do you know what He has gifted you to do?
Do you know what His specific will for your life and ministry is?
Do you know what ministry that He has given you?
What are you doing to find and develop your ministry?
Do you realize that this ministry is more important than your job, your career, your income, your things?
How are you fulfilling your ministry?
I challenge you to seek God. Let Him show you what He has for you to do. Get involved in it! That is the most satisfying way to live. Just do what you were made to do.
It is not hard to know God’s will. Philippians 2:13 tells you that God will produce in you the desire and the ability to do what He has for you. It is not some secret you can’t figure out nor is it something hard that you will not enjoy.
Rather it is what you were born to do. You will love it. So just relax and do what God put in you to do.
