“Well done, good and faithful servant!  You have been faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things.” (Mt.25:21 NIV)

There is a song that I have heard over the years, and still I listen to it occasionally. The chorus goes: “I know I’ll see Jesus some day. I know I’ll see Jesus some day. What a joy that will be, when his face I shall see. I know I’ll see Jesus some day!”

It is clear in the scriptures that we will see Jesus face to face.  We will give an account of how we have lived our lives as Christians.(2 Co.5:10)  It is a most valuable thing to me to receive a “Well Done” from him.  This scripture mentioned above is clear that “being faithful with a few things” is important.  Sometimes, in our thinking, we can be misled and consider the few things in our personal life of little value. They really don’t count for much.  We may not have a great, well exposed life that many see and appreciate.  We need to realize the Lord Jesus is concerned about our faithfulness with the “LITTLE” we have, rather than the “BIG” that we do not have.

You and I may stumble and even fall in our Christian walk with God, but it is so important that we get up, be honest, confess our failure, and keep walking with Christ. Keep your trust in him, who died for you and rose again. He is alive and he will be there to encourage and help us to carry on.  Don’t Quit!  A well done from Jesus is so valuable

I know we’ll see Jesus some day. What a day that will be, when his face we shall see. I know we’ll see Jesus someday!
