Today's Devotion- A Faithful Servant

by Pastor Bong Gonzales

Matthew 24:45-48
45 "Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 I tell you the truth, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. NIV

Every person who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ are called to serve. Though some are specifically called for a certain task, some are called by conviction or circumstance. Some are called personally by God, while others are called by God's trusted servants who in turn are calling people to join in the joy of serving the Lord.

But what ever the reason for serving Him, only one counts most: "to serve Him faithfully". That's what really counts! For some reason many started well but ended up poorly, others did not make it even to the midst of the call, others still just give up, but the few remain faithful!

How can we be counted as faithful servants?

  1. It basically begins with the assurance that you are called.
  2. You always remember who called you and the purpose of your service.
  3. You remain in your true motivation to serve - your love for the Lord.
  4. Your passion to please Him.
  5. Your source of power to serve - His Holy Spirit.
  6. Your focus for all that you do - people saved by the power of His might and by your obedience.
  7. An acknowledgment that this life is all for Jesus.

A faithful servant finishes well and knows that his Master is coming anytime to see how he is doing!

As the sun rises, the servant rise up to do as called, for the night will come that no work could be done!

Let's serve Him as faithful as we can, while we have time! Our call is bring as much soul to His Kingdom and transform them to the image of Him who called us as we ascribe to His glory!

Till next time!
