THE WHO OF FAITHFULNESS

“Who then is the faithful and sensible slave whom the master put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time” (Matthew 24:45)?

That one is prepared for the tribulation of these last days, and the Lord’s return, is revealed in a steadfast faithfulness to the things of God. The way Jesus frames his question implies that few will remain faithful in the last days; phrased in such a way that it creates within the hearer/reader a determination to be counted among the faithful. It is both an invitation and a challenge to pick up the mantle and be this kind servant. If these words of Jesus to not elicit a response of self-examination regarding our faithfulness to the pursuit of Christ’ call upon our lives, we have failed to read properly the text.
