Ministering: Pst. John Izebere
Remember God now, in the days of your YOUTH. Gen. 1:26. Kingdom stewardship is about serving God and the interest of His kingdom. Serve to God is a requirement for a godly living. Man originally was created to serve. Matt. 6:33. Many people are dedicated to wrong and they keep seeing wrong results… Your profitability is anchored in service. If you are not serving, you are in misuse.
Matt. 6:9-10 Every wise man knows that he must serve the living God. Hag. 1:5-14 Your service must involve your time, energy and resources. The reason why you are not having it, is because you are not serving him Ps. 102:13-15
Servants are the ones that enjoy the mercy and favour from God. Matt. 20:21 We do not beg into enthronement, we serve our way to God’s heart. In the kingdom, we don’t lobby for greatness, we serve our way into the heart of God. Steadfastness in stewardship is the gateway to maximize destiny
Steadfastness is continuity in your service in the face of challenges. Rom. 8:35. Advancement in this kingdom doesn’t answer to lazy people. Gal. 6:9 There is no man that serves God that men do not serve. Serving God makes you do well in life. Luk. 22:28-30, 1 Cor. 15:58, Ps. 105:42 Your services to the Lord is for your decoration Gen. 14:14-20
Do you know? That service to God can open all doors shut against you!!!
Gen. 24:1 In this kingdom, service is the pathway to honour. If you are not serving God’s interest, you are not a complete ambassador. Rom. 6:16. Delightsome obedience defines servant hood. If your service to God is not delightful, I doubt if it will yield any result.
It is in the service of God that you get the blessing you desire. Our God is a good business Man. Prompt obedience is what sustains servant hood. Prompt obedience is what sustains servant hood. Be quick to obey. Many people have lost their place in God because of delayed obedience. Gen. 12:1-4
Gen. 17:11 Your service matters to God, it is what He desires. Prayer is a service. Eye service will always get you man’s applause… Nothing more, It is obedience to the word of God that He calls love. You don’t have the audacity to begin to negotiate the time of obedience.
What God calls Love is Prompt Obedience. Every obedient child of God enjoys the presence and favour of God. Tireless obedience is what further validates our servant hood. Gen. 22: 1-5, 16-18. The more of God you obey, the more the world will obey you. Be tireless, as a servant you don’t own yourself.
Don’t tie your obedience to the gaze you can have. What does it takes for our stewardship to be accepted.
Demands of Acceptable and Profitable Stewardship. Pro. 14:23
- Serve God with righteousness. Mal. 3:3 Don’t serve because of what to get. Let your service be tied to a right lifestyle, don’t serve for an ulterior motive. Service is the avenue to change levels in Life. God is not looking for people to serve him, he is giving everyone the opportunity to change levels in life.
- Serve God faithfully. 1 Cor. 4:2. Who is Faithful? A person that is worthy of trust, Loyal, Heb. 3:1-2
- Serve God heartily. Eph. 6:6 Be consistent, be there when you are needed, it’s an opportunity that when you mess up with it, you may never find it again. Anytime you are doing it to be recognized by man, your reward has come. Jer. 17:10
- We must serve God cheerfully. Deut 28:47-48 What you need for God to be attracted to you is a truthful heart. Serving God is the greatest privilege any man can have. Serving God is better than where your qualification will take you. Service in the kingdom is an open ended opportunity. Lk. 2:36-7, Dan. 6:10, Neh. 1:4. Everyone is qualified to serve God
Kingdom stewardship is a lifelong race.
