Theme: BUILDING UP YOURSELVES ON YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH
Text: “And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.” – Matthew 25:20.
Comment: One of the lessons to draw from this parable of Christ is faithfulness in all of life’s endeavours. There is also the theme of self-development, sacrifice, hard work and reward. It is an indisputable fact that everyone who has been called into the Lord’s Kingdom Organisation would have to work out his own salvation. (Philippians 2:12) Everlasting life is not cheap, there must be evidence of spiritual growth or character reformation. The imagery of a farmer used by Christ was meant to drive home the point of building oneself in the work of God. A farmer who tills the soil and labours assiduously will reap the dividends of his work. To the Christians at Corinth, Saint Paul wrote: “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” – 1 Corinthians 15:58; 2 Peter 3:14.
