Stewardship


CS - Counsels on Stewardship (1940) Chapter 4—The Conflicting Principles of Christ and Satan

Christ came to this world to reveal the love of God. His followers are to continue the work which He began. Let us strive to help and strengthen one another. Seeking the good of others is the way in which true happiness can be found. Man does not work against his own interest by loving God and his fellow men. The more unselfish his spirit, the happier he is, because he is fulfilling God’s purpose for him. The breath of God is breathed through him, filling him with gladness. To him life is a sacred trust, precious in his sight because given by God to be spent in ministering to others.—The Review and Herald, June 25, 1908. {CS 24.4}


As Christians, followers of Christ, we are to continue the work which He began. The work is plenty but the laborers are few. It is our duty to do our part in the field and at home. Sister White states that the more we do, the more unselfish we are, then the happier we’ll be. God has given us life to be spent ministering to others. This is our purpose. To help and strengthen and uphold our fellow men. But, we cannot do this by our own strength. It is Jesus we need to look to for strength and courage to continue the work of salvation. Allow Jesus to lead you, stay in the work, and find true happiness.


Our Father in Heaven,

We thank You for this and every day that You give us, and for breathing into our nostrils the breath of life. We thank You for giving us the opportunity to be co-laborers with You in the plan of salvation. Through Your love, we find the strength to continue to help and strengthen one another. We pray that we can continue to fulfill Your purpose for us in life. We pray that we can continue to serve You, with gladness in our hearts. We pray that You will continue to bless the work now and in the time to come. We thank You for all Your blessings, and it’s in the name of Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
