Seven Words Selected
WELL DONE, THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT – Salvation is all of grace and secure. Rewards are proportionate to the loyal and loving service which we render in His name. Compassion for the disadvantaged, lonely, oppressed, infirm and needy ones had been characteristic in Jesus’ ministry from beginning to end. (Luke 4: 18, 19 and Matthew 25: 34, 35, 36) On our part there must be no panic to bless or to self-actualize. If we have studied Jesus, communed with Him and prayed honestly to be used, there will be gracious flashings forth of His life from us to bless His “little ones”. Usually He does not expect us to roam from our present place. He must have gleaners in this part of the harvest field as well. He saw us contributing our part from before the day we drew our first breath. Consider Job 29, Psalm 139 and Isaiah 58.
