Five Minutes with God

Five Minutes with God is a distinct and exciting approach to daily Bible devotionals. Instead of a lofty goal of going through the entire Bible—or even the New Testament—in one year, Five Minutes with God focuses on shorter passages so that the reader can absorb more of the text and apply it to everyday life. This daily podcast will step you through the Gospel accounts of the life of Christ. Each day’s podcast also ends with a thought for further reflection and a call to prayer. By reading, reflecting, and praying, Five Minutes with God will help you come to know Him, love Him, and follow Him like never before.

“But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father. So keep a sharp lookout, for you don’t know the timetable. It’s like a man who takes a trip, leaving home and putting his servants in charge, each assigned a task, and commanding the gatekeeper to stand watch. So, stay at your post, watching. You have no idea when the homeowner is returning, whether evening, midnight, cockcrow, or morning. You don’t want him showing up unannounced, with you asleep on the job. I say it to you, and I’m saying it to all: Stay at your post. Keep watch.”

This, of course, is the same conversation that we read of from Matthew’s account yesterday. In his account, Mark alludes to the stewardship principle that Jesus so often focuses on in His teaching. Jesus’ return is tantamount to the return of the master to take account of the things that his servants have been left in charge of during his absence. In this present age, while we await the return of our Lord, we are indeed stewards of His kingdom, the church. We are responsible for using our things, our talents, and our time in a way that will allow us to be pleasing to Him and that will allow His church to fulfill its purpose and mission in this world. In caring for the Lord’s kingdom, we must remember that His return is imminent. Our goal and aim must be to be pleasing to Him and to be faithful stewards of those things that He has entrusted to us. And knowing that His return will be without warning, we must work to be ready for that great event.

Why has God given us the responsibility of being stewards?

Don’t forget to pray and have a great day!
