The Ministry of Stewardship

In His Presence: Acts 4:32-37  

Understanding who we are as the people of God is critical for success as stewards of His kingdom. We are God’s safety valve, the ones God has called to demonstrate what kingdom solutions look like. Ministry occurs when God’s people serve others for eternal purposes. Ministry touches lives with eternity in mind.

Ministry takes place in God’s house. In Old Testament times, this was the temple. In fact, Malachi 3:10, which talks about tithing, also refers to God’s house: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house.” Ephesians 2:19, 21-22 tells us that Christians are now God’s temple: “You are . . . of God’s household . . . the whole building, being fitted together, is growing unto a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you are also being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” If our church is the dwelling place of God, we will know because the Word will be taught, the needs of the saints will be met, and the community will be impacted.

Ministry also comes at a price. All ministry should be done because God’s people are investing in the eternal perspective. To support the ministry of God, we must not neglect the house of God because it is the center of godly life. Haggai 1:4-6 is convicting: “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses while this house lies desolate?  Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Consider your ways! You have sown much, but harvest little.’ ”

One Minute Please

Godly stewards cannot look after their own houses and ignore God’s house.
