1 Corinthians 4:2 (NET)
Now what is sought in stewards is that one be found faithful.
When it became clear to Eze that he too was a servant (minister) of Christ, he became more faithful to the Lord; He was now more committed to soul winning and discipleship, was now faithful in the way he handled his money, was now committed to the ministry of the word and prayer, and was now accountable to his brethren.
Many believers are not as faithful as they can be because they do not know that they too are servants of Christ. They think it is only their pastors that are servants of Christ. But the Bible makes it clear that believers are ministers –servants of God (see Eph 4:12, 2 Cor 5:18).
While children in a household are still babies, they are unable to serve in any capacity. But as they grow up, they are able to serve and handle responsibility in the family. As they further grow, a point will come that their father will feel comfortable to let them handle the family business. God wants you to handle great power in the kingdom, but it is required that you be found faithful.
One of the more popular Bible verses today is from Isaiah 54:17, it says: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,’ Says the Lord”. This promise is actually meant for the servants of the Lord and every believer should be one. But how many really serve the Lord?
Go into today remembering that as a son in the household of God, you are expected to serve the Lord in faithfulness.
As you meditate on ways you can become more active in serving the Lord, ask Him to empower you to this end.
