God has entrusted us with the ministry of reconciliation. Every child of God is ordained for fruitful stewardship, which means that our fruitfulness is a matter of choice.
The Bible teaches us that we have been given the power to choose between life and death, and everything related to our stewardship is a matter of choice. In the kingdom, everything is designed for profit, while in the secular world, voluntary service often leads to nothing.
However, in the kingdom of God, no one serves without receiving something in return. Genuinely serving God always yields a return. In the kingdom, every labor is meant to attract profits. This is why Exodus 23:25-26 in the Bible tells us that there is a reward for service.
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 emphasizes that when we choose to serve, God provides blessings. It is essential to understand that the blessings that come through stewardship impact every aspect of our lives.
God rewards reapers, not just participants. As John 4:36 states, “he that reapeth receiveth wages.” God doesn’t merely reward those who participate; He rewards those who actively reap.
God is vigilant about our reaping, rewarding not only participants but those who actively harvest the fruits of their labor. Don’t settle for mere participation when it comes to God’s reward.
We have a clear mandate and responsibility to lead people towards righteousness. It’s not sufficient to reach out to people; they may be saved outside, but the process of turning them towards God requires bringing them into the church.
Someone may wonder why their star hasn’t risen. The question to ask is, “Are you turning people towards righteousness?” When we fulfill our part, God fulfills His.
God doesn’t reward groups; He rewards individuals. The reward is not corporate; it’s personal. Therefore, we must personally reap the harvest.
It’s all about our individual commitment, as God’s honor is a personal matter.
What is our task? Reap and turn. Reap, and you will be rewarded; turn, and your star will rise.
Prayer: Lord, grant me the grace to fulfill my role.
