THE FAITHFUL AND WISE SERVANT (August 2017) (138).
Mat 24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
Mat 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
Mat 24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
Mat 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
Mat 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
The faithful and wise servant, is the servant whom the Lord will find him doing what he assigned him to do from the beginning. God has given us talents and he expects us to use those talents to win souls for his kingdom and deliver those who are oppressed by the wicked one in this world. Faithful and wise servants teach their flock the right way to inherit eternal life and the right way to avoid eternal torments. Faithful and wise servants care about Gods opinion and do not care about people's or public opinions because most of the time, the public opinion is always wrong because narrow is the way that leads to eternal life and few people find it.
God has assigned his servants a length of time to prove themselves as true servants or as hypocrites. True servants will continue doing God’s will even though the Lord Jesus Christ delays in his coming. True servants will continue rebuking sin, preaching the true gospel of repentance and holiness, and living a life that proclaims that they are truly born again. This is the criteria that you can use to discern true children of God and false servants.
True servants will remain true servants regardless of the length of time the Lord takes before he returns to judge the world. Fake servants will start fading away after a duration of time. True servants will remain hot whether in cold weather or in hot weather. True servants of God will refuse to change the gospel or give up on Christ whether they are thrown in prisons or persecuted. The apostles of our lord and saviour Jesus Christ did not change the gospel even in the face of persecutions or hatred. Children of the kingdom of God love God and they are willing to die for the sake of the kingdom of God.
The bible is warning us about the unfaithful servant who reasons within himself and says that the Lord has delayed his coming and then he goes back to the world and starts to live like the heathen. The Lord promises us to come when the unfaithful servant does not expect him to come and will find him drinking with the drunkards, sleeping around with prostitutes, gambling, slandering others and doing all sorts of abominable things. The Lord will then assign him his reward with the hypocrites into a furnace of fire where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
This verse encourages us to remain faithful to Jesus Christ till the day that we die because we do not know the day or the hour when we will die or when the Lord Jesus Christ will return to judge the world. Because we do not know the day or the hour when we will reap what we have sown on this earth, we should pass our sojourning on this earth with fear because God is not a respecter of persons and he will render to every man according to his or her works shall be.
Do not go back to the world; remain faithful to Jesus Christ till the end and you shall be rewarded with eternal life. Do not go back or give up on Christ no matter the challenges that you are facing. The challenges that you are facing should bring you closer to God and strengthen the relationship that you have with Jesus Christ. Do not forsake Jesus Christ or deny Him because the consequences of rejecting Jesus Christ are beyond description. Remain faithful to God, so that when the master returns, He finds you doing the right thing as he expects you to be dong and it pleases him and he gives you your due reward. Be blessed in Jesus name.
