    Open Heavens 21 August 2016: Be Faithful ~ Pastor E.A. Adeboye

    Open Heavens Pastor E.A. Adeboye
    Memorise:
    Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1st
    Corinthians 4:2
    Read: Luke 12:37-44, (KJV)
    37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall
    find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and
    make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
    38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third
    watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
    39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what
    hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have
    suffered his house to be broken through.
    40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour
    when ye think not.
    41 Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us,
    or even to all?
    42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom
    his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion
    of meat in due season?
    43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so
    doing.
    44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he
    hath.

    MESSAGE
    One of the reasons why God saved us is that He wants to partner with
    us in His kingdom. God is in search of faithful men, He is looking for
    people who will produce fruits of righteousness within and without.
    Faithfulness in the discharge of whatever assignment God has given us
    is a proof that we are partners with Him. Our assignments must be
    done in a manner that will bring glory and honour to Him. As teachers
    of the Word, we are not permitted to teach what is convenient; we
    have to teach the absolute Word of God. As pastors in our churches, it
    is required of us to be found faithful and have a good oversight over
    the flock of Jesus. As co-labourers in the vineyard, we must not do
    anything without the Master’s instruction. We must do it according to
    His prescription. There are many people today who are in ministry but
    are running it as convenient. This will not meet the requirement of the
    Owner of the work when He comes with His reward. Ministers of the
    gospel must make effort to have a good conscience and to earn
    trustworthiness on the part of those they are presiding over.
    As children of God, we must be in the business of building His
    Kingdom in expectation of His return. We are stewards of the Most-
    High God and much trust has been committed into our hands. The
    work of God must not be handled anyhow. It should not be seen as
    something that should be done with indulgence. The expectation is
    much and one must be faithful and wise so as to be rewarded. No
    matter the difficulties one meets on the way, one must forge ahead as
    a Christian soldiers and fulfil the ministry which has been committed
    into his hand.
    “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him
    be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he
    that is holy, let him be holy still.”
    Revelations 22:11
    It is the motive with which you desire to do things that will be judge.
    By the time the hour of reward comes, there will be different levels of
    reward for different people based on how they have fared in the
    business of God. By the time Jesus returns, He will not return empty-
    handed. This is why those who are lazy need to challenge themselves
    to do something profitable before it is too late. Hard work is expected
    and those living a life of holiness must continue to strive for a life that
    glorifies God. You cannot deceive God, you cannot cheat God. I can
    assure you that whatever you do for God, He will reward you in due
    season. Nobody trades with God and loses. Nobody partners with God
    without having something great to show for it. God is always faithful to
    His word and promises. I always pity those who expect their reward to
    come from their spiritual head. It is very possible for the General
    Overseer to forget you and your labour of love. He may not even know
    you are somewhere working. He sees only what is within his range of
    vision, but there is a God who sees beyond the reach of any General
    Overseer or Senior Pastor.
    “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth,
    that shall he also reap”
    Galatians 6:7
    If you are praying, remain faithful in your prayer ministry. If you know
    how to praise God keep on praising Him. If you know how to give
    quality offerings, keep it up. Keep on paying your tithe. I can guarantee
    you that your reward is coming.
    Prayer Point;
    Father, please help me not to be found wanting in faithfulness in
    Jesus’ name.
    Bible in one year: Isaiah 43:1-45:13 and Psalms 38

    HYMN 2: O JESUS, I HAVE PROMISED.
    O Jesus, I have promised,
    To serve Thee to the end;
    Be Thou forever near me,
    My Master and my Friend;
    I shall not fear the battle
    If Thou art by my side,
    Nor wander from the pathway
    If Thou wilt be my Guide.
    Oh, let me feel Thee near me;
    The world is ever near;
    I see the sights that dazzle,
    The tempting sounds I hear;
    My foes are ever near me,
    Around me and within;
    But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer,
    And shield my soul from sin.
    Oh, let me hear Thee speaking,
    In accents clear and still,
    Above the storms of passion,
    The murmurs of self-will;
    Oh, speak to reassure me,
    To hasten, or control;
    Oh, speak, and make me listen,
    Thou Guardian of my soul.
    O Jesus, Thou hast promised
    To all who follow Thee
    That where Thou art in glory
    There shall Thy servant be;
    And Jesus, I have promised
    To serve Thee to the end;
    Oh, give me grace to follow,
    My Master and my Friend.
    Oh, let me see Thy footmarks,
    And in them plant mine own;
    My hope to follow duly
    Is in Thy strength alone.
    Oh, guide me, call me, draw me,
    Uphold me to the end;
    And then to rest receive me,
    My Savior and my Friend.
