BE FAITHFUL – Saturday October 7th
2017
Memorise: But godliness with
contentment is great gain. 1st Timothy 6:6
Read: Luke 16:10-13 (KJV)


.

16:10 He
that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that
is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

16:11 If
therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit
to your trust the true riches?
16:12 And
if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you
that which is your own?
16:13 No
servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve
God and mammon.

MESSAGE:
A lot
of people think it impossible to live a life of faithfulness, and for this
reason, unfaithfulness has become a norm in today’s world. The world may
tolerate unfaithfulness and live with its consequences, but we as children of
God cannot afford to live a life of unfaithfulness. The Holy Spirit in 1st
Corinthians 4:2
notifies us of God’s requirement in this regard.

 “Moreover it is required in
stewards, that a man be found faithful.”

Faithfulness
has a secret which many may not recognise because of its simplicity. This
secret is revealed in today’s memory verse. It is contentment. Discontentment – an off-shoot of godlessness –
makes a person live an unfaithful life. When you are contented with what you
have, you won’t indulge in ungodly or immoral acts in order to get what you do
not have. Open Heaven 7 October 2017: Saturday daily devotional by Pastor E. A.
Adeboye – Be Faithful.
 When you live a life of contentment, you won’t
like King Ahab misuse your position to entrap an innocent person, so that you
can take over what belongs to him or her (1st Kings 21). Contentment will
prevent you from being envious of people under you who are being celebrated for
faithfully discharging their duties to the glory of God. Lack of contentment
made Haman hate Mordecai, so much so that he planned to get rid of an innocent,
dutiful but uncompromising doorman (Esther 5:11-14). Haman misused his position as
a member of the king’s cabinet to pursue the destruction of innocent people (Esther 3:8-11).
This is exactly what some people in privileged positions are doing today, even
though this is to their own peril.

.
Faithfulness
applies in terms of money and position, but it is also applicable in the use of
your time. This is manifested in such areas as the time you are expected to
spend at your place of work. It is ignorance that makes a child of God to think
that he or she can spend just two out of the required eight hours at work, and
then expect commendation by the God of Justice, when he or she brings the tithe
of wages he or she did not work for. The Name of the Lord is blasphemed when a
so-called child of God absconds from work for days – pursuing “missions”- only
to come back and collect full wages covering the period of absence, in the full
glare of unbelievers. God’s requirement of our faithfulness in stewardship
applies to every area of our lives. My prayer is that the Almighty God will
open your eyes to see the different areas of life you are lacking in
faithfulness, and grant you grace to live faithfully in all these areas.
Through faithfulness, unbelievers will see the light and glorify your Father
who is in Heaven. This virtue of faithfulness was the reason why employers of
labour came to our Church in those days to recruit workers for their secular
establishments. May God bring such days back to us in Jesus’ Name.
Prayer Point
Father, through Your Spirit,
please help me to be faithful in life as a steward of the Name of Jesus Christ.
