Well done good and faithful servant.

Posted by appolus on January 1, 2021

Mat 25:21 His lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.

The seasons of God are good. One of those seasons is a time for weeping and mourning. Yet, if that is all that we have, if we lived forever in a perpetual winter of weeping and mourning then nothing would ever grow. We would not grow and neither would our effectiveness for His kingdom. Neither would we grow in the knowledge of God. There is a time to rent our clothes and throw dust on our heads, yet if this one season or any other one season becomes the whole then we render ourselves weak and ineffectual.

To be content in every situation, in every season is the high water mark of the servant of God. We have been called to be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect. He is our measure, none other than God Himself. This word perfect is to be complete. To find the fullness of the measure, to be mature. We were children and we played as children, now that we seek the fullness that is in Him then we put away childish things.

The fullness comes when we can walk in the Spirit whether the sun is shining high in the sky or whether the storms clouds threaten to explode over our heads. This is the measure of the fullness, to be unmoved from our standing before the throne. To weep? Yes. To laugh? Yes. To mourn with others? Yes. To comfort others with the same comfort we ourselves have been comforted with? Yes. This is the good and faithful servant. To be standing in this world, very much a part of it, but to be breathing the rarefied air of the Kingdom. To walk through this world but to exist in the atmosphere of the throne room.

The atmosphere. Science would tell us that this is the unseen gasses that surrounds the planet held in place by gravity. Ours is uniquely designed for life, made up of nitrogen and oxygen which we breath into our lungs and it sustains our lives and all life. The atmosphere before the throne is made up of holiness and glory and majesty. This is what surrounds the saints. The Holy Spirit holds it all in place. Our gravity is the word of God, our atmosphere is the Spirit of God, and it produces and sustains our spiritual lives.

We are called to be faithful in a few things. Just a few things, a few foundational things. Patient perseverance in doing what is right. Loving God with all of our hearts. Doing what our Lord commanded us to do. Seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. Glorifying God as we yield and surrender to His work in our lives. Do this brothers and sisters and you will hear those words we all long to hear “Well done good and faithful servant……..enter inot the joy of the Lord.”
