The book called Luke in the Bible, was written by a Gentile believer named Luke, who was a close associate of the Apostle Paul. He set out to carefully investigate the truth concerning Jesus Christ, using the eyewitness accounts of those who were with and knew Jesus and His ministry. His intent in writing this Gospel was so that his readers would know the truth regarding Jesus and what they have been taught concerning Him. It is our hope in studying this Gospel, that we too would better understand the truth concerning Jesus, so that we may better know Him and make Him known to others.
“He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.” (Luke 16:10)
The above words that Jesus spoke are part of His teaching on stewardship of earthly resources. Faithfulness is needed in being a good steward. Each of us will have to give an account to God for what He has entrusted to us. Faithfulness is important in our daily lives: Faithfulness to God, faithfulness in our relationships, faithfulness in our commitments, faithfulness in the work that is given to us. Thus, we are also to be faithful stewards of the earthly resources that God has entrusted to us.
For this Sunday's worship service, we will look together at Luke 16:1-18, and the title of the message is "Being Faithful to God."
