Haggai 1:1-11

Service means ‘To provide/give something that the other party needs’. Service is very important in the Vineyard if the body of Christ (You & I) will grow and excel exceedingly at whatever we do.

Service means ‘To be useful and available at anytime and with anything you have with no reluctance’. God made you to be who you are today; He gave you that gift, time, money, name it; and until you give it back to Him through your Service to Him, you can never experience peace with all with all He had given to you.

The next things God demands from you after you had given your life to Him are all that you’ve got, and until you give them to Him you cannot enjoy life to its fullest Exodus 23:25 “And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”

Bible says in Matthew 22:14 that “For many are called, but few are chosen.”

We, believers have all been called, but a few of us are privileged to be Chosen to Serve the Called.

Note that God will keep calling but have you wondered how all the Called will be served? THE CALLED WILL BE SERVED BY YOU AND I.

I am glad to let you know that it is a great privilege to serve. Service gets you anywhere, it opens you up to lots of Opportunities and Lessons in life. While serving, things happen; I mean all the things around you work for you without your consent Matthew 6:33. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” 
Until you Seek your God / Creator through your Service, nothing can be Added to you/Created for you.

You are not called to be served, but called to Encourage and Persuade others to Serve 2nd Timothy 2:2.

That gift of God upon your life was not invested in there just for you. As you know that no product will ever be created for itself (to serve itself), but others. God blessed you so that you can bless others Genesis 12:2.

1st Timothy 4:14 says, “Neglect not the Gift that is in thee, which was given thee….”

You have been endowed with the Gift of God and you must not neglect it in order not to be called a wicked man and not lose it (your life, your time, your gift, talent, skill and money). Remember in the Parable of the Talent, the wicked man was cast into outer darkness Matthew 25v26-30. 

“26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 

27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 

28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 

29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 

30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

But that will not be your portion in Jesus’ name. Using your gifts and ability multiplies your gifts and you personally.

Each time you neglect the assignment that is needed to be done in the vineyard, God gets angry and He gets you cursed because He knows that, you will not do that at your place of work, but this will not be your lot in Jesus’ name. Amen!

In Haggai 1:1-11, our Anchor Scripture; the Bible tells us that God was angry and He was pouring out His heart to His people (they are not unbelievers). You can be a better Person, Banker, Trader, Professional or Career Personnel; if only you can give yourself (everything about you) completely to Him.

Until you serve in the Kingdom/Vineyard, all that you Starve in life will not come to you/locate you.

Note today that you (your gift, talent, skill, expertise, knowledge, intellect, money, time and belongings) are needed in the body of Christ and until you give it, you cannot really have it Luke 16:11 (“Who will commit true riches onto your hands?”).

Your seemingly endless/interminable service makes you become an Established Personality both on earth and in heaven.
