My scripture reading came from Matthew 25:14-30. This is a wonderful truth that speaks on the subject of investing. Investing in the Kingdom of Heaven! Jesus shared a parable of a man going on a journey and called upon his servants and entrusted to them his property. To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
As you further read into this parable, Jesus said when the man came home he found 2 of the three servants invested in the talents doubling what was given him and they were praised! The third didn’t invest and the man was disappointed in him and the talent was taken away from him.
Application: God wants us to invest! Invest in our character (who you are and who God knows you can be). Not only in character but, as members of HSMBC. How will a lost world hear the Word of God if we will not invest in them? I am challenged to be an investor today. Our church is to invest; Never to lose focus by hording God’s Word and never take an interest in the souls who need Jesus around us.
I am so thankful to be the pastor of a church that will invest. Invest in souls and invest in teaching and making disciples. This weekend we experienced Scripture! Jesus said that if we would have the faith of a mustard seed, we could move mountains. Because HSMBC is a church that will invest – God Blessed.
Prayer – Father, thank you for your Word! It is so true and wonderful to experience. Thank you for the challenges you give us to be good stewards for you and help me lead your church to continue to be investors for you. It is my desire to please you and only you! I want to hear you say – Well done my good and faithful servant! In the sweetest name under and in heaven I pray- the name of Jesus… Amen.
Hope you enjoy this video of you investing for the Kingdom of Heaven!
