Generous And Faithful Christian Workers

"In addition, a man must be found faithful in stewardship." 1 Corinthians 4:2

Read: Luke 12:37-38

37 Blessed are those slaves whom the Lord will find watching when he comes; verily, I say unto you, he will gird himself and make them sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

38 And if he comes in the second or third watch and finds them as they are, lucky are those slaves.

A Christian worker is a steward who has been entrusted with the careful use, control, and administration of Kingdom resources and properties as a born-again child of God. Our Lord Jesus Christ's stewardship teachings emphasized two crucial concepts: duty and accountability. In Luke 12: 48, Jesus says about responsibility:

'But he who did not know and did acts deserving of stripes will be beaten with few stripes.' For to whom much is given, much will be demanded; and to whom mankind have committed much, they will demand even more.'

God created man and everything else for His pleasure, according to Revelation 4:11. Individuals are thus responsible for the physical and spiritual gifts bestowed by God. Christians are also accountable for whatever is entrusted to them. The gifts and talents we have been given are to be put to good use for the expansion of God's Kingdom. In addition, the Bible states in Romans 14: 12 that each of us must give an account to God, and in Romans 2: 6 that God will render to each person according to his deeds. As a result, every Christian worker must answer to God. The Bible also warns us not to squander our talents, but to nurture and polish them.

'Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy and the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.' 1 Timothy 4:14

Christians are to be wise stewards of the gifts, talents, and abilities that God has given them. They are to serve in the fear of God, with humility and absolute submission to authority. They are to serve in a spirit of thanksgiving to God and for the benefit of others. Christian workers, regardless of department, should not see God's work as a way to make money. 

The task should be done as if it were for the Lord, who will faithfully recompense those who faithfully serve Him. Finally, whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might (Ecclesiastes 9:10), and don't be slothful in God's work, but rather zealous in your physical and spiritual service to God ( Romans 12 : 11). In Jesus' name, I pray that as you work fervently for God this year, He will reward you accordingly.
