In my weekly Bible study class, there will be the occasional question marked “for personal thought.” The question from last week’s lesson really hit home.
We are studying the book of Revelation. In chapter 20, we are learning about Christ’s reign on the earth during the millennium. The saints will be serving during that time on the earth. The personal question was, “If your position of authority in Christ’s kingdom will be in proportion to your faithfulness in service today, how much responsibility will you have?”
I responded that honestly, I don’t know. I wasted too many years where my focus was outward and striving for the praises of men. I’ve been self focused and had tainted motives. Thankfully, the Lord is patient and helping me to grow. I love Him more and trust Him more and desire to obey Him more.
I don’t know what responsibilities the Lord will give me based on me being a faithful servant.
But I do know this, that I trust Him to judge rightly and reward me accordingly. I also know that He didn’t give me what I do deserve for my sin. Instead He laid the punishment for all my sin on Jesus Christ. Thank You Lord!
