In this week’s topic of stewardship, we saw that as Christians, stewardship means that we understand and acknowledge that this one life we’ve been given has been given by God to seek out all that God has planned to do through us and fulfill that for His glory. And that the key to this call being fulfilled in our lives is by being faithful to shine the goodness and glory of God through everything that we have and everything that we do. We went over the parable of the talents in Matthew 25 to illustrate the notion that faithfulness, not results and accomplishments, is what should be the focus in the stewardship of our lives.

This week, we discussed the topic of serving. We shared our epic fail moments and funny bloopers in our various serving experiences. In most cases, we realized that our failures in serving stemmed from being self-centered and selfish. In fact, we came to conclude that serving as a Christian is diametrically different to what serving is in the world. There are hundreds of places in the Bible that show not only that God commands us to serve him but also that he is worthy of serving. However, this duty to serve isn’t motivated by self-righteousness, or holier-than-thou mentality nor is it motivated by a desire to earn favor and through our good works ultimately earn salvation. Serving matures our faith. It sharpens our faith. It purifies our faith. Serving and every other spiritual discipline or habit of faith leads the Spirit to clash directly with our flesh. And the devil will do everything he can to keep you from being faithful to God.
