Time to Produce

Time to Produce

Church the time to be productive is upon us; ok it has kind of always been upon us ever since we made that commitment with God to be a part of the body of Christ. It is however time for us to stand up and do something. We are First Baptist Church of Ingleside. We are believers in Jesus Christ. With these statements come a responsibility to take what God has given us and provide the people in our community with the message of Jesus Christ. Now is not the time to hunker down and try to stay afloat. Now is the time to be bold and to step out of our comfort zones. If we do not utilize what God has provided for us, then we are like the servant who was given one talent and went and hid it in the ground.

Mathew 25:14-30 

14 “For it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants[a] and entrusted to them his property. 15 To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. 16 He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he made five talents more. 17 So also he who had the two talents made two talents more. 18 But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money. 19 Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.’ 21 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 22 And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.’ 23 His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 24 He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you scattered no seed, 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.’ 26 But his master answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I scattered no seed? 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. 28 So take the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents. 29 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Be bold in your faith church, God is not done with us. If we pray and come together and listen to the word of God, then He will be faithful to reward us for our faithfulness.
