"He said therefore, a certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come." Luke 19:12-13.

Remember that it was the master who called them. He then gave them what to do. In other words, you as God's child must be called by God and given what to do. None of you can say the reason you are not useful in church is because you didn't go to school. Let me ask you,
which school did apostle Peter attend? He was a fisherman and he became head of the apostles. Among the apostles later on came in Paul, the lawyer, Luke who was a doctor, Matthew the tax collector whose expertise in accounting was not to be doubted; but this fisherman led them all. You cannot say the reason you are not occupying is because you're not educated. No, you do not have to go to school before God can use you!

Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, "whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave, whither thou goest."
Notice it says "whatsoever." What can you really do in your church to be a blessing to someone else? What has God given you to do? You cannot deny that he has not given you something to do. Everyone of us has received something from God. No sacrifice, no labour in his vineyard to affect people's lives and even yours; nothing. You need to find something he's called you to do.

"Do it with thy might." That means, not haphazardly; not doing it with an attempt. It has to do with your vigour, with your intellect, with your expertise. Yes, we cannot negotiate with God what we have already done for him. We cannot do enough for him. Whatever the cost, just do it. When I was young, my mum used to tell me that it is better to send a hungry child on an errand than a child who has eaten very well. The former will surely go crying and running because he has not eaten, but the later will linger and even negotiate when to go.
God wants us to go indeed and let's remember that the only person that can feed us to satisfaction is God. In doing all he has asked you to do, use all you have to do it.

"...for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom in the grave whither thou goest." When Jesus said "occupy till I come," it means after this time there is no more work. This is the time to work. We must work now! There is reward from him who has given us the work.
Now that you are strong, now that you are still alive, do it!
God bless you!
