Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant!

Be Strong, Be Well — Sunday, November 8, 2020

There are so many things in life that require our mind, time, and energy. Life is full of basic everyday things demanding our attention and involvement in them. Just the very basic essentials of food, clothing, and shelter are so consuming and preoccupying. Beside all of this, we add other time-draining activities which often become distracting, and even detrimental, to our Christian walk.

Even so, there is one objective, one all-encompassing goal that must be on our mind and consistently maintained in our everyday activities. This is loving God, serving Him, and making our way to our future home in Heaven.

What a great and glorious day it will be when we hear the voice of Jesus say, “...’Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’” (Matthew 25:21).

Regardless of what we must do to keep up with ourselves, our families, our things—the overriding duty and chief priority in this life must be reverence for God, obeying His will, as we strive for the joys of the Lord in our eternal home in Heaven.

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all” (Ecclesiastes 12:13). —Chris
