Understanding Biblical Stewardship

Biblical Stewardship is a subject that excites me, because when we truly understand what it is, we find that it's a life transforming reality, causing people to live purposefully, and optimally. It is the key to the living the Abundant life, that Christ died to give us.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Why I Find Biblical Stewardship Exciting

I find Biblical Stewardship exciting:

Firstly, because it connects God's people with their creative purpose, we can be all that God created us to be.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10.)

Secondly, because it connects God's resources with God's purposes.

"And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. (Deuteronomy 8:18.)

Thirdly, because it enables us to live as God has intended, loving God and loving people.

Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:29-31.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Ownership vs. Stewardship

Biblical Stewardship is the realisation of God's divine ownership. We come to understand that God owns all, since he created all.

The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. (Psalms 24:1.)

We come to realise that we own nothing, but we are managers of God's possessions. We come to the realisation that we've been given the responsibility to manage, invest, and multiply all that God has placed in our trust, under his direction, as his Spirit leads us.

The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's; But the earth He has given to the children of men. (Psalm 115:16)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Biblical Success

The way to Biblical success, is to be led by the Holy Spirit in the dispensation of all that God has entrusted to you. It is your willingness to yield to the Spirit of generosity, and your willingness to use all that you have, to impact our world for eternity. It is the acknowledgement of the fact that the highest use we can put anything we have to, is to use it to serve the Lord.

Some of the riches that the Lord has entrusted to us are:

  • Our spirit, soul and body;
  • Our relationships;
  • Our personality, and passion;
  • Our time, gifts, talents, skills and other abilities;
  • Our opportunities and influence;
  • Our finances and investments;
  • Our education, careers, jobs, businesses and ministries;
  • And the Gospel.

All these things, and whatever else the Lord has committed to our trust, are to be used for his Glory.

The understanding, acceptance and practice of Biblical Stewardship, opens up the Bible and the treasures of life, and delivers them to us on a platter of gold. It's through this understanding and practice that the scripture in Matthew 6:19-33 comes alive and becomes a living reality.

It's in understanding and practicing Biblical Stewardship that what others seek for day and night, are automatically delivered to us.

Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. (Matthew 6:31-33.)

With a Biblical stewardship mind set, you will:

  • find true contentment;
  • find yourself freely expressing your love for God and people in word and deed;
  • succeed accidentally than on purpose;
  • succeed without compromising your beliefs and stance in Christ;
  • freely fulfill God's purpose for your life;
  • find your true life through living a life-style of generosity.

As you are faithful at dispensing your stewardship responsibilities, the Lord will entrust more into your hands for the progression of his kingdom.

A Lifestyle of Generosity

So how can you live a lifestyle of Biblical stewardship and generosity?

You must be mindful to partner with a cause, or causes that represent the cause of Christ; in doing so you align yourself with him as his steward and co labourer; advancing his kingdom and prayerfully investing his resources where he wants them invested.
