What saying of Jesus resonates most? The one found in Luke 12:48-NKJV:
“For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.”
In addition to our spiritual blessings in Christ (Ephesians 1:3), Christians have been given a great responsibility (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-116; cf. 2 Timothy 2:1-2; 2 Timothy 4:1-2). We’ve been entrusted with the gospel of Christ (1 Thessalonians 2:4; cf. 1 Timothy 6:20; 2 Timothy 1:8-14). What a responsibility that is!
We’ve also been given various abilities (Matthew 25:14-30) to carry out the above responsibility. We’ll be judged on how we used our abilities respective of the opportunities that came our way. Did we take advantage of every opportunity to preach and teach Christ to others, or did we miss a few?
Luke 12:48 makes us think inwardly, doesn’t it?
