FAITHFULNESS = MULTIPLICATION
(Don’t simply read the outline but look up the scriptures.)
Matthew 25:21 (NKJV) His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
We are to be good stewards of our gifts.
(1 Corinthians 4:1-2, KJVAE)
To be good stewards of our gifts is to be faithful. Faithfulness – Steadfast, consistent, dependable, loyal, trustworthy or reliable. Jesus implies faithfulness in one word, multiplication. (Matthew 25:23, KJVAE)
Results of not multiplying what God gives us:
(Matthew 25:24-29, KJVAE)
True faithfulness = multiplication. We were born to multiply. (Genesis 1:28, KJVAE)
True faithfulness not only equals or involves multiplication, it results in Joy. (Matthew 25:23, KJVAE)
This Joy can’t be taken from you and can be enjoyed on earth and in heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:13, KJVAE; Matthew 7:20, KJVAE)
Not multiplying could bring curses instead of blessings. (Mark 11:13-14, KJVAE; Mark 11:20-21, KJVAE)
Fruitlessness leads to judgement. (Matthew 25:26,30, KJVAE; Matthew 5:13, KJVAE; Matthew 5:13, AMP
Do You Have a Maintaining or Multiplication Mindset?
(Genesis 1:28, KJVAE; Matthew 25:23, KJVAE)
When we are faithful with what God has given us, He will multiply it and give us more. God did not take the money and divide it up equally between each one. The one who worked the hardest and smartest got more, the one who was lazy got nothing. We are to give and care for the poor but not to the lazy. Do you have a maintenance mindset or multiplication mindset? Which is more biblical? (Matthew 25:28-29, KJVAE)
The Difference Between the Servants.
(Matthew 25:14-30; KJVAE)
The servant with the five bags of silver had a multiplication mindset and multiplied what God gave him. (Matthew 25:20-21, KJVAE)
The servant with the two bags of silver had a multiplication mindset, worked and earned to more. (Matthew 25:22-23, KJVAE)
The servant who received one bag of silver dug a hole in the ground and buried his master’s money, he had a maintenance mindset. (Matthew 25:24-30, KJVAE)
How we see God greatly determing how e serve God!
Jesus is coming back and we will give account how we multiply or maintain what God has given us. When we are faithful and multiply what God has given us, He will give us more.
