“Well done, good and faithful servant.” Those are the words Jesus says awaits those who remain faithful to Him. These are the words serious followers of Christ long to hear.
God sets the standard of faithfulness. His promises never fail. The pages of Scripture are filled with things God said He would do and the record of these things taking place. He then commands and expects faithfulness from those who put their faith and trust in Him.
Since faithfulness is being a good steward of what we have been given, faithfulness is within the grasp of every follower of our Lord Jesus Christ. Too often we look at others and think, “if I only had that talent, resource, or opportunity, I could really serve God.” If God wanted you to have those things, He would provide them. He has provided what is best according to His wisdom. He then expects faithfulness with what He has provided.
One of the delights of the role I have in the Valley Church family is to observe the faithfulness of God’s people walking in obedience to God and serving others. I constantly hear from people who have been touched by faithful ministry.
