“The Faithful Servant”
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’ Matthew 25:23
These are words that EVERY TRUE CHILD of the Living God, hopes to hear when they stand before the Lord Jesus to receive their rewards, for their service to Him. This is a part of the parable of the talents, spoken of by our Lord Jesus. It concerns the rewards that were given to those who were FAITHFUL, with what their master had provided for them to use. Some were FAITHFUL in using their talents, even though their tasks were small, they remained FAITHFUL.
However, there are those who do NOT use their talents, because they are NOT FAITHFUL to their master. They may try to HIDE them, so no one will know that they even have them, much less use them. They may use them for some purpose, other than FAITHFULLY USING them for the Lord. In this case, it may be doubtful that they are TRULY CHILDREN of God, and if that is the case, the reply to them is: “You wicked and slothful servant!” Then the Lord will say: “Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.” (v41) Which group are you in? Those who are the FAITHFUL or those who are the UNFAITHFUL?
If you are part of the UNFAITHFUL, that means you are destined for ETERNAL PUNISHMENT in Hell, with ALL its HORRORS and NO WAY to ESCAPE. In order to ESCAPE ETERNAL PUNISHMENT, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then you should CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and be one of His FAITHFUL SERVANTS, who will enter the JOY of your Master, the Lord Jesus Christ, and enter your ETERNAL HOME, HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
