“Well done, good and faithful servant. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.”
I think as Christians all of us would love to hear these words at some point in our lives. But we would have to know clearly what it is we are called to do. Jesus has made this clear by commanding us to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and love our neighbor as ourselves.
This would take submission to our Master with a true desire to do it His way, and not our own. When we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as the Son of God, His Holy Spirit comes to dwell within us and Paul tells us to, “… walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.”
It would take dedication and commitment on our part, seeing it through to the very end no matter how long it might take. Hebrews 3:6 tells us, “but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house — whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end.”
It would also take a life of godliness and 2 Peter 1:3 says that Jesus has taken care of this on our behalf, “seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.”
Inspired to Cherish
Let’s read Titus 2. Now pick the portion of Titus 2 that applies to you and write it out in your personal journal. Now let’s take time to pray that God will help us to be faithful servants in the portion that He has given us.
