CREATIVE FOR JESUS

Creative for Jesus
Being creative for Jesus is a process that every Christian should master. If we get this process wrong whatever product that we produce no matter how good it is, it will not be what God wants and no matter how much we enjoy doing it, it will not yield the results we desire because we will still miss a big part of the greatest joys that people can experience. It is important that we recognise the role that
God plays in our everyday lives and in our work. We cannot achieve our goals without His guidance. 
In whatever endeavour that you desire to embark on, always ask God to it will be all of Him and none of you. You should be always enter the spiritual realm and be sincere before you can do anything. In this way God’s revelation will pour out to assist you in your efforts in a very powerful way; and this can result in your best work yet.
God wants to give us the thrill and honour of genuine involvement in his magnificent purposes. Being creative in your work is God-like and He longs for his children to know this joy. Through His amazing love, Jesus wants us to be His co-heir and His co-workers so that we can better understand our purpose, he doesn’t want us to dictating machines, operating according to what we have been told and not coming up with any brilliant ideas and methods of our own. 
1 Corinthians 3:9 says “for we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.” And 2 Corinthians 6:1 continues to say “working together with Him, then, we appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
The self and its knowledge must die. Our sinful dependence, pride, selfishness and trying to earn heaven’s approval behaviour must die. We must yield everything to Christ, acknowledging that his ways are higher than ours. We must also go so far beyond this that we refuse and degrade the belief that our divinely-created mental and physical power is unchristian as we have been taught that everything physical is of the devil.
We must always remember that we have a special place in God’s heart. Physically, the Lord is totally self-sufficient. He needs us not more than the handyman need the services of a four year old. But His joy could never be complete without our contribution.
We are all called to minister with our talents therefore let’s continue to seek to refine our gifts. If we are ever hesitant, the parable of the talents is sufficient to seal the matter for us. (Matthew 20-5:14-30). As we grow in Christ, our motivation intensifies. Our love for God fills us with the desire to develop the abilities he has graciously intrusted us with. We treasure the gift because we adore the Giver.

SERVANT OF GOD

How can I be a better servant to God?
Thousands of books are published about leadership but a few about servant-hood. Everybody want to lead and nobody wants to be a servant. In today’s world, we find it very hard to avail ourselves for God at any given time. We have busy schedules and plans we don’t want to be messed up without showing resentment. 
But this exactly what servant-hood is about; not being able to choose when and where we want to serve and giving up the right to control our schedules and allowing God to interrupt them when He needs to.  
Are you a called soldier who is tangled up in the affairs of everyday life and your actions displeasing to the one who called you? Then the time has come to consider the following guides that will help you to become a better servant.
Adopt Paul’s personality
Paul thought of himself as a ‘servant of Christ’. In everything he was subordinate and subject to Christ, and that Master set the parameters of his obedience. Paul understood that God didn’t call him to be creative but obedient, not innovative but faithful. For Paul, success in the ministry depended upon pleasing God. To proof his faithfulness to God Paul says; “For am I now seeking the favour of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10)
Pay attention to needs
As a servant, you should always be on the lookout for ways to help others. When you see a need, seize the moment to meet it, just as the Bible commands us, ‘whenever you have an opportunity, we have to do what is good for everyone, especially for the family of believers. (Galatians 6:10) When you are part of a congregation, you should always find an opportunity to serve. If not in the service of others, then how can we serve God who is in need of nothing?
We miss many occasions for serving because we lack sensitivity and spontaneity. Great opportunities to serve never last long so take advantage when the moment comes.  
Be faithful to the ministry. 
Faithfulness has always been rare quality posed by human beings. Most people don’t know the meaning of commitment. Are you also counted this list? Well you can change this behaviour by refraining from making commitments casually and then break them for the slightest reason without any hesitation, remorse or regret. Be a person that people can always count on, keep promises you need to keep, vows you need to fulfil and honour your commitments. God has promised to reward your faithfulness in eternity. 
Be Humble
As much as we are always applauded for our selfless and generous behaviour, we have to be careful not to develop and overinflated sense of self-importance. No matter how far along we get in the walk with the Lord, there is never a time when there is nothing we need from other believer. God has intentionally designed it this way. We don’t all have the same function in the Body of Christ and we all need each other. 
Be thankful
As a devoted servant of the Lord you will be sure to take thetime to thank God, regardless of your schedule and your own sense of urgency for the task at hand. Before you ask for another thing from God or present anything else to his people, Paul ensures that he gives thanks to the Provider of all things. The frequent giving of thanks in the life of a believer is and often repeated, highly important practice in all of Paul’s teachings (see Phil. 4:6; Col 3:15; 1 Tim 2:1)
Learn to detach yourself from the false identity that your ego has fabricated for you and connect to your true self, being of higher divinity.

TALENTS

I was always told to stick to one talent, but I always thought that I am destined to be multi talented. Is it a bad thing to be exceptional at many talents? I am not quite sure, but now days it is rare for people to do just one thing at least that’s how I feel. I am sorry that I do not fit your mold, wait I am not sorry. I am not going to apologize for being me and doing things that I love.
I believe the word to describe us as Emilie from Puttylike would use is multipotentialite what does that mean exactly? “A multipotentialite is a person who has many different interests and creative pursuits in life. Multipotentialites have no “one true calling” the way specialists do. Being a multipotentialite is our destiny. We have many paths and we pursue all of them, either sequentially or simultaneously (or both). Multipotentialites thrive on learning, exploring, and mastering new skills. We are excellent at bringing disparate ideas together in creative ways. This makes us incredible innovators and problem solvers. When it comes to new interests that emerge, our insatiable curiosity leads us to absorb everything we can get our hands on. As a result, we pick up new skills fast and tend to be a wealth of information. ” Puttylike.com
I would think that being great at many things means you then become more valuable to someone else. I never really could stick to one thing growing up so I do not know why people think they can change this fact about me. This is the way God made me I have to accept it.
If no one else can accept this than they are not supposed to understand your vision, move on there’s more people out there that will understand your vision and believe in your success. Just make sure you put gods kingdom first and everything else will follow. 
What does the bible say about having multiple talents? 
The gifts that we have been given are not just ours they also belong to God. God gave them to us for the purpose of putting HIM first and serving other people.
We all have something to give. We can give our money and our time to volunteer for a worthy cause, be a friend to someone who is sick or lonely,or be a peacemaker, teacher or minister.  Some of us may choose an occupation that is service based. We may just do our everyday jobs with a humble heart and respect for others. We also may receive gifts that are of the creative side of the world. 
Apostle Paul said this: 
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man’s gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. ” (NIV, Romans 12:5-8)
In His Parable of the Talents, Jesus taught that we must use our gifts carefully. A talent was a very large sum of money, about 80 pounds (36 kg) of silver. Before leaving on a journey, a very wealthy man trusted his wealth to his servants for a brief time that he will be away. Two of the servants used the money carefully to earn income for their master. However, the third servant did not put the money to good use, and the master was very upset with this matter. The parable is written below: 
“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
“After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
“The man with the two talents also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’ “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
“Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
“‘Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (NIV, Matthew 25:14-30) 
The master represents God in this parable, and the servants represent us. The English word talent, meaning our natural abilities, is derived from this parable. It would make sense that that is the case behind this. The lesson of this parable is that we must use our talents and abilities, as well as our wealth, in God’s service. 
If we do not use our talents for the greater good of God than he will be upset with us, and consider us to be of the world and not of him. 
One might think that if we give more than what we have we lose more but I believe that you can get true blessings and wealth from using your talents and sharing them with others. Service to others brings a deeper meaning to life that just having money, power can not buy.
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. (TNIV, Luke 6:38)
If singers can become actors and than have there own clothing line, be dancers than why cant I have many talents and businesses in fields that I wish to be in. 
We are all unique and special in our own ways and it may take us a while to figure out what are talent and purpose is for each of these talents but we are all important to the kingdom of God and ensuring that his will on earth is done. We are not of the world we are of God. 
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. (NRSV, 1 Corinthians 12:4-7)
Are we even human 
Why does this room feel like outer space 
I’ve been feeling paranormal 
when you and I are standing face to face 
when the worlds collide two hearts one mind
close encounters of the very best kind every time 
Are we even human why do we feel so out of place 
G-H-O-S-T feeling like a I’m feeling like a 
G-H-O-S-T feeling like a I’m feeling like a
