Kingdom Living has Rewards
What is the reward for being a good steward?
□ Join in the Master’s happiness now.
□ Celebrate together with the Master now.
□ Enter the Joy of the Lord now.
□ Partner with the Lord now.
The Joy of the Lord is your strength. The sharing in the Master’s Celebration, happiness and joy comes with your using your talents as a Good Steward. The reward for being a good steward is more responsibility and sharing in the Master’s Joy.
Here are four different versions of Matthew 25:21 “The Parable of the Talents.”
“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!’ Matthew 25:21 NIV
“The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together! Matthew 25:21 NLT
His lord said unto him, Well done, thou 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 25:21 KJV
His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into and share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys. Matthew 25:21 AMP
The master has given you talents based upon your abilities. HE wants you to trade them and use them to further the Kingdom of God. If you hide them you will be called a wicked and lazy servant. If you use them as a Good Steward you will receive the reward from the Master which is HIS Joy.
Go use your skills and abilities today to serve others. You will experience the reward of God’s presence living in you through the Holy Spirit.
