Faithfully Waiting

“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. But if that evil servant says in his heart ‘My master is delaying his coming’, and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” - Matthew 24:45-51

 Jesus tells us today that to serve Him requires faithfulness. He places you in charge, and gives you certain responsibilities to fulfil in this life.

The mark of a faithful person is that they are dependable and can always be counted on. They are the kind of person that we go to when there is a crisis.

 Faithfulness in marriage may seem old fashioned in today’s modern culture, but it is the foundation for any sound and lasting marriage.

 People who are responsible and faithful get ahead in their work because they are trustworthy and reliable.

 Why be foolish and negligent in the area of labour that the Lord has placed us in?  Our labour, whatever it may be, is to please Him and to fulfil His every desire. When He returns He will reward those who have been faithful.

 Dear God and Father help me to be faithful to the supreme cause in life that You have called me to be Your servant and to serve with diligence and faithfulness, in the name of the Lord Jesus.
