May God bless you with the knowledge of understanding as you read along. Are you wondering how would God judge the world? Jesus Christ has made it known to us in the bible how He would judge the world. Also, apostle Paul also wrote how the judgment would look like.
HOW WOULD GOD JUDGE THE WORLD?
Long ago I also wonder how God will judge the world. I have heard and have also read about the parable of the talent before but I did not understand the meaning until now. You might have your own understanding of the parable of the talent but just read and be patient on the conclusion of this message. Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is like a Master traveling into a far country and called his three servants. Unto one he gave five, another he gave two and the last he gave one talent and he took his journey.
The one with five talents and the other with two talents traded with their talent and got profit in return but the one with one talent was pissed and dug his talent on the ground. When the master arrived the two servants who traded with their talent presented their profit and they were congratulated. But the last who was given one talent told the master how hard and mean the master is to people. The servant said he berried the talent and nowhere is your one talent. The master was disappointed knowing that the servant would have been able to do the least thing. At least he would have as well returned the money with a little gain. Instead, he made the money useless and without purpose. The master collected the talent from him and cast him away. Matthew 25:1-30
How People Waste Their Talent
There are many people today who leave their lives like the last servant who dug his talent on the ground. Some are gifted but refuse to use their gift; Some are rich but they won’t give while some have the talent of singing but yet they won’t glorify God with the talent. There are other groups of people who feel so special in the house of God. They won’t join ushering department or take any role in the church. They believe they are older than every person in the house of God. I have witnessed a lot of brethren who see some roles in the church as demeaning and should be given to women.

SIMPLIFYING ROMANS 12:3-7| NO AGE IN SERVICE | HOW WOULD GOD JUDGE THE WORLD?
No man should think of himself as higher than any other person in the church. We are many making the body of Christ one and every man with his own grace. We all have different offices and also a different gift (talent) in the church. No matter how small or irrelevant you think your grace is, don’t think you are not loved by God. Do what you have to do with your gift. Just like some have been graced with wealth while others wisdom and some physical strength and more.
John 15:2 | HOW GOD WOULD JUDGE THE WORLD
2. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
The above verse clearly explained that anyone who uses his gift will receive an increase but those who fail to use their gift will lose it. Just like the story of the talent above and the common saying “continuous trials bring about perfection”.
1. Use your talent for his service for that is the greatest service to God.
God will judge us accordingly to his expectations of our contribution in His house and in our general dealings with people in life. Matthew 25:41-46
James 4:17(KJV) He who know how to do good and refuse to do it, unto him is a sin.
May God help us all in our roles in life and give us the grace to do what is needed of us. Shalom
