"Be Faithfull" from Matthew 25:14-30

2 Points of Faithfulness:
We should prove our faith to be genuine.
Make it your goal to please Him.

The interpretation of The gifts of the Holy Spirit is "talents".

If you are faithful in small things God will add your gifts.
Remember the four T:
Temple- our body
Treasurers - use our money to God's glory.
Time - don't be lazy
Talents - your gifts

Romans 12:6-8
6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Whatever work you're doing consider that as gifts - be it just taking care of kids, laundry etc. Work for God's glory.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean for His own understanding and He will direct your path straight.

The one who hid the money in the ground represent the people who neglect the gifts that God has given to them.
Honor the Lord with your crops, with the first fruit.

If we listen to what the worldly people listen and sing what they sing, then what difference do we have with the unbelievers?

We have our own standard of living and not the standard of living in the world. We should not imitate the worldly people.

In verse 19
Reckoning will happen when He comes. And He will inquire what you have done with your gifts.
We should be diligent before He comes and making more fruits from the talents He gave.

Romans 14:12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.

We have to imitate the two servants, faithfulness can't be taught it is a characteristic imparted by God to a yielded man, when you surrender your heart to God then you will be faithful. Open and surrender your heart to God.

Revelation 21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Pastor's Message
Matthew 25:21 "His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

In my personal observation, "Faithfulness to God and faithfulness to God's calling are lacking in lives of many believers nowadays". And what should be our response to this? For me, we should be very careful to listen to the voice of God and learn to really yield our hearts to Him. So, "Be a faithful minister of Christ because He requires FAITHFULNESS!"
