Can you prove it?

I Corinthians 4: 1-2

So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God.  Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.  NIV

those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.

I have been given a trust.  I am a child of God.  I have accepted Christ as my savior.  I am inhabited by the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, I must prove faithful.

It’s easy to say, “I won’t sin.”  In my case, “I won’t worry.”

It’s much harder to follow through on that commitment … to prove it.

But, if I am to prove faithful, I must do my level best, day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment to prove faithful, to trust God and not myself for my future.

As I work my way through the last month of this project, I feel like a little kid started out the door to school.

“Do you have your lunch?  Your flute?  Your homework?”  In short, are you prepared for what lies outside the door?

Am I prepared?

That’s what I’ll think about today.

  1. Mmmmm, tough call.
    But, fortunately, the One who led you to and through this incredible journey goes with you “outside the door”, not to monitor your faithfulness or otherwise, but to enable it.
    And, I might add, you have been already been incredibly faithful in this–every day.

  2. Well, not every day, but, pretty close!

    I love the thought that He goes ahead, behind, beside, over and beneath me as I move on to the next phase of my life … He is indeed “outside the door,” as you say.

    Thanks for that!

  3. We are required to be faithful, but the best part of that is that we are NOT ALONE.

    GOD IS FAITHFUL and He ENABLES us to be faithful also. I know I would constantly fail without His enabling.
