I am a faithful servant of the lord

  1. 1. I AM A FAITHFUL SERVANT OF THE LORD Matthew 25:14-30
  2. 2. Matthew 25:14-30 v.14 "Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. v.15 To one he gave five talents[1] of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.
  3. 3. Matthew 25:14-30 v.16 The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. v.17 So also, the one with the two talents gained two more.
  4. 4. Matthew 25:14-30 v.18 But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. v.19 "After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.
  5. 5. Matthew 25:14-30 v.20 The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.‘ v.21 "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!‘
  6. 6. Matthew 25:14-30 v.22 "The man with the two talents also came. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.‘ v.23 "His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
  7. 7. Matthew 25:14-30 v.24 "Then the man who had received the one talent came. 'Master,' he said, 'I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. v.25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.‘
  8. 8. Matthew 25:14-30 v.26 "His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? v.27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
  9. 9. v.28 " 'Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. v.29 For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. v.30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

  22. 22. 1Timothy 4:1 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.

For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].
  37. 37. Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
