BE FOUND FAITHFUL – 2
TEXT: MATTHEW 25:24-30
MEMORY VERSE: “And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (MATTHEW 25:30).
“Have we been true to the trust He left us,
Do we seek to do our best?
If in our hearts therein naught condemns us,
We shall have a glorious rest.”
The man who received one talent was charged with unfaithfulness because he failed to use his talent. He was disloyal to his master. Consequently, he was severely punished. Human errors consist of omission (what we fail to do) and commission (doing what we are not suppose to do). We will render account of what we do and what we fail to do, to God at last.
Your life is that one talent with all its endowments. God will call you to account for it someday. A holy life of obedience to God will avert His judgment. People who revel in sin and continue to give excuses to defend why they cannot get rid of it and be saved will end up in eternal punishment. You are expected to maximally use your time and talents to serve God. You are given one life to live; invest it profitably.
QUOTE: We will render account.
CHALLENGE: Live your life with the reckoning day in view.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, give me grace to be faithful to You.
