In Charge

If Jesus left you in charge, could He count on you?  Would you take your responsibility seriously?

 

44 This is why you also must be ready, because the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

45 “Who then is a faithful and sensible slave, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give them food at the proper time? 46 That slave whose master finds him working when he comes will be rewarded. 47 I assure you: He will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked slave says in his heart, ‘My master is delayed,’ 49 and starts to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards, 50 that slave’s master will come on a day he does not expect and at an hour he does not know. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 24:44-51 HCSB

But it must not be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must be a slave to all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life—a ransom for many.”

Mark 10:43-45 HCSB

A disciple is not above his teacher, or a slave above his master. It is enough for a disciple to become like his teacher and a slave like his master. If they called the head of the house ‘Beelzebul,’ how much more the members of his household!

Matthew 10:24-25 HCSB

Don’t work only while being watched, in order to please men, but as slaves of Christ, do God’s will from your heart.

Ephesians 6:6 HCSB

But Jesus responded to them, “My Father is still working, and I am working also.”

John 5:17 HCSB

Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.

Philippians 2:3 HCSB

A Heart God Will Use

  • Be convinced that you are to serve the Lord.

  • Pray that God will you show you where and how to serve.

  • Look for holes and fill them.

  • Think of others
