This weekend we looked at Matthew 25:14-30 and what 2013 might hold when it comes to our walk with God.
Take a few minutes to pray and reread the passage. Ask God to speak to your heart about where your relationship is with “the Master”. Based on the passage, ask yourself the following questions:
Q. What has God entrusted to me? (time / knowledge / influence / finances / abilities / a child / a spouse…)
Q. What have I done with what God has entrusted to me?
Q. Do I see God as a loving master who looks to reward me, encourage me, entrust me with more; or do I see Him as an angry God waiting to punish me when I fail?
Q. What’s stopping me from stepping out in faith and being faithful to care for what God has entrusted to me? (bitterness / fear / misunderstanding of who God is / laziness…)
Q. If the Master (Jesus) came back today, what would He say to me?
Q. Is it my joy to see and know His joy?
May we be a community of believers that doesn’t simply seek to maintain a religious standing, but rather seeks to bring joy to our God and in turn know His joy more than ever before.
Additional passages to read: John 15:1-11 and the Book of James.
