Britain’s Got Talent

The title of today’s blog is “Britain’s Got Talent” a tv show here in the UK where they search for a previously undiscovered person/persons to perform their talent at the Royal Variety Performance in front of the Queen.

So have you been watching Britain’s Got Talent? Will you be watching it tonight?

Tonight is the final of this show, where a acts the final acts will perform for the last time before the winner is chosen by public vote.

So has Britain Got Talent?

Having watched a number of the initial auditions and most of the semi finals this last week, I have to say that at times it has looked as though Britain really hasn’t got talent! Having said that there have of course been a few outstanding acts, some of which didn’t get through to the semi finals or indeed tonight’s fina, which personally I liked, but hey, if we all liked the same things we’d all be bored!

Regardless of the outcome of tonight’s show, and whether we personally agree with the successful act, do you think Britain Has Talent? Do you think you have talent?

In God’s eyes, we all have talents. You may still say you have no talents, but that it really isn’t true, you do have talent, you may not have discovered them yet, or accepted that they are talents. God gives each of us spiritual gifts to use to help others or tell others about God’s message.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11 (The Message)

God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people!

The variety is wonderful:
wise counsel, clear understanding, simple trust, healing the sick, miraculous acts, proclamation, distinguishing between spirits, tongues, interpretation of tongues.

All these gifts have a common origin, but are handed out one by one by the one Spirit of God. He decides who gets what, and when.

For those of you who know what your talents or spiritual gifts are, ask God to help you continue to use them for His honour and glory.

For those of you who have not identified their talents or spiritual gifts, ask God to help identify them and then help you use them in His work.

There are a number of website which talk about Spiritaul Gifts. One you may find helpful is

Identify your talents, find your spiritual gifts and use them all to share your love and knowledge of God.
