GraceNotes – May 26, 2019
In this week’s message, we looked at the parable from Matthew 25 about the master who went away and left some of his possessions with his servants to manage. The master represented Christ and the servants represented professed believers.
One of the lessons we drew from this parable was that we have each been given a variety of opportunities to serve God in His kingdom for the sake of His glory. The question we have to ask ourselves is, “what are we doing with what God has given us?” Are we investing in things that have eternal impact? Are we seeking to display our love for God by our sacrificial service of our fellow church members?
The challenge to us if we want to be “good and faithful servants” is to look outside of ourselves, consider others to be more important than us, and give of our time, abilities and possessions (all temporal things) in order to help others on their spiritual journey. What are you doing and how can we help?
