“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made
ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?”
“Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so
“Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.”
In any institution, establishment or kingdom, the moment one stop to service is the point that one is no longer entitled to the reward that goes with that service. Once an individual retires from service, he is no longer entitled to the benefits of that organization. The same applies in the kingdom of God Matt. 24:45-47. Remember, the believer’s access to the blessings of God is by serving God and the interest of His kingdom Exo. 23:25. For a believer therefore to keep experiencing God’s blessing, he must remain committed to service to the end Gal. 6:9. In essence, continuity in kingdom service is the requirement to remain entitled to the blessing of God. Scriptures make us to understand that God’s grace is what empowers for continuity in service in the kingdom 1Cor. 15:10; Acts 26:22.
Everyone in scripture that we celebrate today as kingdom giants served God to the very end of their lives. Through thick and thin, they maintained their walk with, and service to God. If they did it, we can do it also, we simply need to connect to the grace of God at work in their lives. Therefore, as we explore the lives of some of them in today’s teaching, I see the grace that worked for them answer in your life.
Scriptural Examples of Men with Grace for Continuity.
Peter was the apostle Jesus that took the mantle of leadership over the church Jesus came to inaugurate Jn. 21:15-17. Peter was known to be an unstable person, but by the grace of God at work in him, he labored doing the assignment Jesus handed over to him and made it to the end Acts 2:14-16,38-41; 1Pet. 5:1-4.
Paul the Apostle had the task of carrying the gospel to the Gentile nations Gal. 2:8. He was one apostle that faced many challenges, a lot were life threatening, but he made it to the end 1Cor. 9:16-17; 2Cor. 11:21-30; 2Tim. 4:6-8.
Judas Iscariot was the first disciple of Jesus Christ with a portfolio, which indicates a great prospect for him in the kingdom Jn. 13:29. He had a sit reserved as one of the twelve to judge Israel in the new Jerusalem Lk. 22:30. But he crashed through his love for money after three years of active labor for Christ Matt. 26:14-15; 27:3-5.
The truth is that, each one in the kingdom will determine his lot Deut. 30:19. We all have enviable destiny as members of the kingdom, all that we need is the decision to remain steadfast to the end, laboring tirelessly 1Cor. 15:58.
Jesus is Lord!
Father in the name of Jesus, I place a demand on the grace for that will empower me to remain fervent in my walk with you and kingdom stewardship till my time on earth is over Acts 26:22.
Make the decision and document it in your journal that nothing will take you out of your service for God, and then pray for grace to abide by that decision forever.
I curse every act of the devil to shift your ground from commitment to God!
The fire of Godon your life shall keep burning hotter by the day from today!
