The Master Appoints!! - Bro. T. Stephen

My  dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of  Matthew 24:45,   “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time?

From the above context we learn that the master,  usually  appoints   the  faithful and  wise  servant to  take charge of all things in his household, so that he might provide food for them  at the proper time. Christians  must be faithful and  wise  in all that they undertake.  We are to faithfully carry out the good work that God has given us to do. It might  be  your job or business or your ministry.  There are however two types of people : the spiritual type and those that are worldly.  The spiritual person,  is here identified as a wise and faithful servant. The faithful servant obediently carries out the instructions of their Master.  Similarly, let us faithfully heed the instructions of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and obediently carry out our duties for His  glory, knowing that such a servant will receive a wonderful reward.

While talking about a faithful servant I wish to relate  an incident that  took  place in my own life many years ago.  A  brother by name   Rajendran  was our neighbour in  Kanyakumari.  He wanted  to  purchase a car so he enquired the   church pastor in our town as to where he could purchase a good car for his budget. Immediately the pastor referred my name , as I was doing car business then  in Chennai. Those days my business was flourishing in chennai. The pastor told Mr Rajendran that there is  a young man  very honest and faithful in his business. If we approach him he  himself will do all necessary things  and we shall be able to buy the car from his company  “Stephen Cars.”So they came to my office.

Mr Rajendran did not know that I was the proprietor of the Stephen Cars  Company. While negotiation  was going on,  suddenly he saw my mother coming out   from our house. He rushed up to her and asked her,   “How is it that you are here, have you also come to buy a car ? ”  Then my mother told him,   “The owner of this company is none other than my son Stephen.”Mr Rajendran was shocked , he thought that Stephen was someone else.  He couldn’t believe his eyes, because he had seen us in Kanyakunmari  as a poverty stricken family.  He then asked me a good question, “Who was your back up? Which Sait, Marwadi or business magnate   helped you  in your business?” I told him, “My Back Up  was  JESUS”.  Yes my dear children ,  when  we remain faithful in little things then God will make us ruler over many things. This happened in my own life.  God exalts those that humble  themselves  before God. May the Lord help you to be faithful in little  things.  God  Bless you.

Prayer:  Our loving heavenly Father, we thank  You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, We pray that we may faithfully fulfil all the work that You have called us to do in a cheerful way.  Help us to be honest and faithful in little things and not be careless about our work.  Be our backup Lord in our lives. We cannot trust anyone, not even our own people they often forsake us and betray us. So help us to stand tall before them. Guard and protect us.  

In  Jesus  Name We Pray.
