    Becoming a Steward of GOD

    Post by Susan on Mon Aug 30, 2010 10:25 am

    ‎1 Peter 2:15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

    Be warned about the "cloke of maliciousness". There are a lot of enemies setting out to destroy your FAITH in the LORD. But, we are "servants of GOD", and we are to "FEAR GOD", not what foolish men, try to do to us. When the enemy sets about to destroy, we are to "Honor the KING".

    Merriam Webster Dictionary describes a servant as: "one that serves others ; especially : one that performs duties about the person or home of a master or personal employer."

    Another word for servant, is "stewardship". Merriam Webster describes it as:

    "Definition of STEWARDSHIP
    1: the office, duties, and obligations of a steward
    2: the conducting, supervising, or managing of something; especially : the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care "

    We are entrusted with the WORD of GOD. It is upon HIS WORD, that we must stand. It is by out actions, that we carry out HIS WILL.

    1 Corinthians 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

    ‎1 Peter 4:10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
