Freedom Phrase-Sharing in our Master’s Happiness

March 4th, 2019

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Redemption, today’s Freedom Phrase is based on Matthew 25:22 and 23.

Jesus was telling a Parable that revealed how three different people handled the wealth that their master gave them. The master gave them different amounts.

“The man with two bags of gold came and said, “Master, you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.”

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.”

This servant did not receive as many bags of gold as another servant in the story who received five bags. Nor did he produce as much as that servant. But he managed what he was given faithfully. What has God entrusted with us? Those are opportunities to invest in His Kingdom and to make a difference in this world for the Gospel.

Through Jesus, we are set free to share in the labor of the Lord, and to share in our Master’s happiness.
