“His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matthew 25:23 KJV
When it comes to our finances, looks, talent, athletic prowess and intelligence we are all on different levels but there is one way we are all equals. When it comes to faithfulness we all start at the same gate. No one has any excuse when it comes to whether or not we are faithful people. According to Romans 12:3 we all have been “dealt the measure of faith.” God isn’t expecting something from us we are incapable of. He has given each of us the ability to place our faith in him for salvation and to live a life of faith it’s up to us whether we choose to live it or not.
There are so many that seem to have an excuse when it comes to Christian service or ministry. They say things like, “I don’t know the Bible well enough”, “I’m afraid someone will ask me something I can’t answer” or “what if I blow it?” The truth is the only real thing we need is to be faithful to Christ and he will provide. Someone once said “ninety percent of ministry is just showing up”, and I would have to agree. God is looking for someone to show himself strong through. He’s looking for someone to be available to him and that isn’t asking too much is it?
