March 28, 2021
Steward: someone who manages property or other affairs for someone else, one that serves the interests of another, (as a verb) to act as a caretaker
To be faithful : steadfast in an assignment or allegiance
2 Timothy 2:7, 1 Corinthians 4:1, Luke 12:16-21
1.God owns everything and therefore is the real owner of all we have (Genesis 1:1)
2.God owns the earth (Psalm 24:1)
3.God owns all the people (Psalm 24:1)
4.He owns the money (Haggai 2:8)
5.He owns the animals, plants and forests (Psalm 50:11)
6.He owns your body (1 Corinthians 6:19)
Even wealth is an entrustment to you from God and he watches what you do with it.
You are not living if all you do is take and never give.
Be conscious of revealing God through your body.
Living for ourselves will bring us into a lot of problems.
Deuteronomy 6:5, 10:12
To be a good servant you need to know how God wants you to serve him.
True stewardship brings you to servanthood.
A true servant will succeed anywhere they’re placed.
The life of a person who doesn’t prioritise serving God is hard.
Matthew 8:8, Matthew 25:21
We should know that servanthood is expected of us and it must be a dedicated servanthood.
Servanthood is employment, and God is your employer. Therefore as an employee you know you’re guaranteed wages from God.
Servants know that consistency and dedication to their work is what will result in them receiving a salary.
In our service to God we should be dead to self, dead people don’t react to insults, comments and criticism.
satan can use people to make you less committed to serving God.
(Exodus 17:5) In serving God you might encounter challenges.
We become better people when we pass through adversity, very little growth happens during the good times. (John 15:2)
