Loyalty demanded of stewards – Sunday Magazine – The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News
The message in the form of speech is very relevant for every believer who wants to be used by God as a channel of blessing for his church.
We are employed in the affairs of God and these affairs are so delicate that they cannot be entrusted to everyone, especially to the infidels.
Almighty God, Himself, meticulously gave this business to a select few. As “pilots” in God’s plane, we must live overboard in character if we are to be entrusted with heavenly riches.
The church auditorium is so few worshipers today. The character of some would-be believers is questionable and to the extent that it has become difficult to entrust them with heavenly treasures. Those who profess to be faithful must be tried in all walks of life before they are justified in this regard.
Believers, especially men, must discipline themselves at all times in front of ladies. Job covenanted with his eyes not to look at “a servant girl.” Some tell lies with impunity in the house of God and even in workplaces. While some leaders and pastors steal church tithes and offerings. Curiously, delaying the payment of tithes or offerings is tantamount to robbing God. They are criminals in the house of God!
Our lives and characters should portray who we are as Christians: in dress, conversation, and all aspects of life. The corruption in vogue in the political space now resides in the Church. Christian leaders are no longer faithful to God when it comes to accepting financial favors from politicians. They collect this money and pray for politicians. God does not answer such prayers. Their pulpit messages change whenever a politician is among them. It is so sad to see preachers gathering to pray for candidates for political office and even making different false prophecies and predictions of victory. They do this after collecting fat husks.
The churches have been infested with various corrupt practices because of infidels within them. It is so appalling that the Church of Christ has become a citadel of corruption, where evil thrives. The Lord is not bothered by these unscrupulous elements because He remains faithful and cannot deny Himself. We should strive to be faithful in all areas of life as believers.
Money is one aspect where some believers prove their infidelity. They borrow money from their brothers without paying it back, despite all the promises to do so as soon as possible. Most of the time, the reactions of borrowers to lenders saddens the heart. As believers, we must not behave in this way or sell our birthright for money.
It is very difficult to recommend certain brothers to employers because of their infidelity. Some, when recommended, go to these companies to embezzle money and leave a dent in whoever recommended them.
Integrity is synonymous with loyalty. The word of a Christian is his bond! Every day a believer’s word is questioned or verified, that believer has backslid and is no longer in the faith. Infidelity has blinded people to what God has in store for them. This is the reason why some people withhold their tithes to the Lord. This infidelity has ridiculed Christians before enemies. Infidelity separates believers from God and turns every good thing into its opposite – an ugly situation.
God is looking for faithful believers who can invest their wealth in His kingdom plan. Kingdom power is surging and faithful people are needed to partner with God. Appointment available today.
