THE FAITHFUL STEWARD

Hello Friend, trust God you're doing fine. Welcome to another episode on this blog. I pray as you read through, God will enlighten your eyes of understanding to see the transforming power in His word and get transformed. Our focus today is on Faithfulness, "The Faithful Steward". The word faithfulness comes from the coining of the words "faith-fullness" meaning "faith in his fullness brings faithfulness." The word faithful comes from the Greek word pistos meaning "believing, confiding, trusting, of persons who show themselves faithful in the execution of commands". So a man isn't regarded faithful until he has faithfully discharge is duty. Also, the word Steward comes from the Greek word "oikonomos" meaning "manager, one who has been entrusted to discharge a duty." Therefore a faithful Steward is a manager who has been entrusted with an assignment and shows himself faithful in fully discharging it. However, it is important that we know that a Steward isn't a free man because he has a boss and he is accountable to him from time to time. God has made us stewards of the New Testament and he is our master (boss) to whom we'll account to. *2 Corinthians 3:6 (KJV) who also hath made us able ministers of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life."

THE PRESENCE OF GOD

Hello brethren, Welcome to another episode on the Gospel Exposition blog. I pray that as you read, you will come to the realization of the ever-abiding presence of God in your life in Jesus name. Today, we’ll be treating a very broad and important topic, which is “THE PRESENCE OF GOD”. It is important to note that God is everywhere. He is omnipresent. From our catechism class when we were young, we were taught that God is in heaven, in the sky, in the world and everywhere. He is right there where you are, he is also at the same moment, where I am. The patriarch David said in Psalms 139:7-8 (KJV), “Where shall I go from Your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from Your presence? If I go up into Heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol, behold, You are there.” Having established that fact, when we talk about the presence of God, we are actually referring to the manifestation of God’s presence, encountering His presence and becoming conscious of His presence. An example of someone in the Bible who knew God’s presence was Jacob. After running away from home, prior to when he served Laban, he began a journey that had no end. This was a very low point in His life. When he slept on that holy ground in the course of his wandering and seeking God, he had a life-changing dream. In Gen 28:16, the Bible says about Jacob; “And Jacob awakened from his sleep. And he said, Surely Jehovah is in this place, and I did not know.
