God moves through faith and through the faithful steward. God welcomes the faithful servant into heaven with these words “enter in good and faithful servant”.
Matthew 25: 21″His master replied, `Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’:22 “The man with the two talents also came. `Master,’ he said, `you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’ 23 “His master replied, `Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ (NIV)
God responds, as I have stated, to faithfulness in his stewards, but what makes a faithful servant?
The practical steps of a faithful servant
Matthew 7:23 – You don’t want to hear this
Matthew 25:14 -30 – Which one do you want to be?
Acts 14:8-28 – We should learn from Paul and Barnabas what a faithful servant of Christ, will face and the cost
What is it that I must do to be a faithful servant?
A faithful servant:
