Word of Encouragement-Servant

October 19th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – This week, our words of Encouragement direct our attention to who we are as a new creation in Christ.

Today’s Word of Encouragement is “Servant.”

In Matthew 25, Jesus told a story of a man who went away on a journey and entrusted his wealth to his servants. When the master returned from his journey, He settled accounts with his servants.

To some of them, he said, “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 is the smile of God on His faithful servants. This can be our experience when we use what He has given us for His Kingdom.

Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”

Find encouragement in following Jesus as a servant of God in the Year of Endurance.
