Into His Presence
“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord” (Matt. 25: 20-
We notice in the preceding verses that the lord of these servants had taken a journey into a far country and left his goods in his servants’ hands to do for him and to receive a reward afterward. One had received five talents to use for his work, one had received two talents to use for his work, and then there was the one who received one talent to use in his work.
Let us think about the first and second servants and see what they received when their lord returned. First of all their lord said, “Well done. Thou hast been faithful over a few things,” such as, “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me” (Matt. 25:35, 36). These two servants were faithful in the work given them to be done. Their lord told them they would be rulers over many things, which was wonderful. But then comes the greatest reward of all—when he tells them to enter into the joy of their Lord.
How important it is for us to work the work Jesus has given us to do! It is imperative that we as individuals remain faithful in the heavenly calling. Not anything will be of more importance than hearing our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ say, “Well done” and “Enterthe joy of thy Lord.” God Bless and may each one stay faithful, hear the Lord say, “Well done,” and enter into His presence.
