Build Others

Luke 22:31-32 “…Simon, Satan has asked to have you, to sift you like wheat, but I have pleaded in prayer for you that your faith should not completely fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen and build up the faith of your brothers.” (LB, emphasis added)

 

Today, we will be looking at the fifth thing about faithfulness and that is Faithful People Build The Faith Of Others. Faithful people do not just bring others to Jesus, they build the faith of others. Read the rest of this entry

Witness

John 1:41-42 “Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus. Looking intently… Jesus said, “Your name is Simon, son of John—but you will be called Cephas” (which means “Peter”).”

 

To pay attention to the things that can grow my faithfulness, the things God wants me to pay attention to, first I need to know that God Uses The Little Things To Test My Faithfulness. Secondly, God Uses My Talent To Test My Unselfishness. Read the rest of this entry

Push!

Galatians 6:9 “Don’t get tired of helping others, of doing what is right. You WILL be rewarded when the time is right, if you don’t give up.” (CEV & LB, emphasis added).

 

God loves you. God cares about what you are going through. God cares about what is happening to you. God cares about the details of your life. However, God is more interested in what you are becoming than what is happening to you. Read the rest of this entry

The Training

Matthew 25:29 “For the man who uses well what he is given shall be given more, and he shall have abundance. But from the man who is unfaithful, even what little responsibility he has shall be taken from him.” (LB)

 

If you use the time that you have now wisely, investing in other people and making life better for others, God will give you more of it. If you invest your resources, your finances, and your money in making other people’s lives better, God will give you more. That is simply how it works. Read the rest of this entry

Required

1 Peter 4:10 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” (NIV, emphasis added).

 

We will start today by looking at the flip side of the story from yesterday. What if instead of staying at home, the young man chooses to go to church knowing God has said do not forsake the assembly of the brethren. Read the rest of this entry

How It Works

1 Corinthians 4:2 “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.” (NIV, emphasis added).

 

God Uses Your Talent To Test Your Unselfishness. This is a dimension of faithfulness that a lot of people do not pay attention to. God will use the talents and resources He has given you physical, spiritual, financial, and giftedness to test how you serve people, and how unselfish you are. Read the rest of this entry

The Tests

Matthew 20:28 “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

 

I love the apprenticeship system. There is a part of Nigeria that uses the apprenticeship system a lot. I think it is still the best way of grooming leaders and of starting businesses. Before you get your freedom from the apprenticeship system, you must have a master and serve that leader. Read the rest of this entry

Principle Of Life

Luke 16:10-12 “Jesus went on to make these comments: If you’re honest in small things, you’ll be honest in big things; If you’re a crook in small things, you’ll be a crook in big things. If you’re not honest in small jobs, who will put you in charge of the store?” (MSG)

 

The small things that nobody sees are what determine the big things that everybody wants. Luke 16:12 And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to someone else, who will give you what belongs to you?” (GNT). Read the rest of this entry

In Little

Revelation 3:8 “I know what you do; I know that you have a little power; you have followed my teaching and have been faithful to me. I have opened a door in front of you, which no one can close.” (GNT, emphasis added).

 

We began to look at faithfulness yesterday and the first thing about faithfulness is that God Is Looking For Faithful People. Do you know God’s location? It is always easier for God to find you because He knows your location. Read the rest of this entry

Faithful

Luke 18:8 “…But when the Son of Man returns, how many will he find on the earth who have faith?”

 

It is all about your faith. And in today’s anchor scripture, Jesus says when He returns will He find people who have faith, or will people have given up on God? Read the rest of this entry
