Mid-Week Stewardship Thought

Stewards, not Owners

When the time was right, Jesus came to live perfectly under the law, and to be the perfect atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world (Galatians 4:4). Through His death and resurrection, we are free to live abundantly and eternally with Him. Our faithful response to Christ’s love shown on the Cross is our stewardship. In Christ, we are new creations, people willing and eager to share His love wholeheartedly with others. By grace, His Spirit equips and strengthens us to use our lives and resources to serve Him by serving others. Through faith, we acknowledge our role as stewards, rather than owners, of what He has entrusted to us.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for give me the privilege of being Your steward. Help me to manage faithfully all that You entrust to me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Blessings on your journey as a steward!
