Able and Faithful

Please read 1 Chronicles 9 – 10…

“…Very able men for the work of the service of the house of God.” 1 Chronicles 9:13 b  (KJB)

This is a word that is very true of many people of God who are genuine followers of Jesus Christ in the world today.  God has called, equipped, and enabled us to serve Him and to be faithful in our calling.

The following are the words of men of God who were faithful in the exposition of the word of God…

very able men for the work of the service of the house of God: men that had not only strength of body, which some part of the work of the priests required; but had courage and fortitude of mind to set about the service of God with cheerfulness, and to preserve it from corruption.” John Gill’s Exposition of the Bible

“It is said of many of them that they were very able men for the service of the house of God, v. 13. In the house of God there is service to be done, constant service; and it is well for the church when those are employed in that service who are qualified for it, able ministers of the New Testament, 2Co_3:6. The service of the temple was such as required at all times, especially in this critical juncture, when they had newly come out of Babylon, great courage and vigour of mind, as well as strength of body; and therefore they are praised as mighty men of valour.” Matthew Henry Commentary

All of us are not called to be pastors, preachers, missionaries, etc.  Many are called to places of unseen services.  We are still called, equipped, and enabled by the Spirit of God to serve, honor, and glorify His name; the glorious name of Jesus the Christ.

May we be faithful, because He has made us able.
