Ten Talents & Endless Possibilities by Keith Cook Jr.
³...Do business till I come.² Luke 19:13
According to joshuaproject.net, there are 6.73 billion people on earth. Out of those 6.73 billion, 2.74 billion fall into the catagory of Unreached or Least-Reached. That's 2.74 billion people who have possibly never heard the gospel.
What a glorious blessing to be the one who is able to reach out to some of these unreached people. Although the task can seem at times burdensome we are given strength to persevere and finish the race we have been commanded to run. Don't allow the devil to manipulate you into thinking someone else will go and share the good news with them or allow you to forget about this mission altogether.
In Luke 19:11-27 Jesus told the disciples a parable about a nobleman who had ten talents. The nobleman gave his servants ten talents or coins before he left on a long journey. He was expecting the servants to use what he had given them wisely and to multiply his investment.
As we see upon his return the coins were not given to be buried (hidden) and kept out of reach (safe) but to be used to create (invest, expand, reach out) more coins.
This parable also applies to us today. We do not have to look very far to notice that there are many people who need what we have, the Gospel. The Gospel is God's saving power for them. We have been given so much more than coins. We have been give the great opportunity to give away the good news of salvation in Christ Jesus.
Because of God's grace towards us we are now given the command to go for Him. "Go and make disciples of all nations" today.(Matt. 28:19) He has given us more than ten talents. He has given us unlimited possibilities and scores of opportunities around us. We need to take the talents given, allow the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us, and invest them in winning the lost and serving the Lord.
