Faithfulness is Undefeated | Mother's Day | Shawndra Lucas

May 14, 2023 • Shawndra Lucas • Matthew 25:14–30

Matthew 25:21 "Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!” What does it mean to be faithful? Faithfulness is living according to the truth of God’s word, and doing it again tomorrow. 1) Faithfulness keeps our success in perspective. We think that success is measured by how much we have to show for what we’ve done. But in the Kingdom of God (which is reality), success is measured in units of faithfulness. 2) Faithfulness keeps our perfectionism in check. We were not created to be perfect, we were created to behold perfect. So I don’t have to be afraid to fail. I don’t have to hide my gifts in the ground. I am free. 3) Faithfulness keeps our reward in him. If the reward we seek is anywhere outside of Him, it’s an idol! Faithfulness will cure imposter syndrome. Faithfulness will prevent regret.  What we find in him is a great celebration and the fullness of joy. That fullness begins with faithfulness - YOU ARE FREE TO BE FAITHFUL!
