Faithful Service

SCRIPTURE

v.2 “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”

OBSERVATION

Paul has been entrusted with something of infinite worth – the Gospel, and emphasises that it is to God alone that he is answerable for the way in which he fulfils that trust.

APPLICATION

As Christians we have all been entrusted with the Gospel and the task of sharing it with a dying world. Our life circumstances, our opportunities and our characters are all different and there is thus no one way to share that Gospel. However, we need to be aware of what has been entrusted to us and be faithful in our witness to it.

PRAYER

Lord, it can be easy to make my way through life being mindful only of my own troubles and difficulties. Please help me to remember those who brought me to Jesus and, like them, be faithful in my turn in sharing you with others. Amen.
