Now may the God of peace... make you complete in every good work to do His will.
2 Corinthians 9:8-11
The big idea of stewardship in Scripture is built on a fundamental premise: It was the responsibility of the master to furnish his steward with everything needed for his assigned task. The master’s job was to provide the resources; the steward’s job was to use the master’s resources according to his will.
It could be said that stewardship is the defining theme of the God-human relationship. In Genesis 1, God made man the steward of His creation (Genesis 1:28). The New Testament calls followers of Christ His servants—another way to define a steward (Romans 1:1). Paul says that bishops are stewards of God, meaning overseers of His Church (Titus 1:7). Paul called himself a steward “of the mysteries of God” (1 Corinthians 4:1). In every case, God as Master provides what the steward needs to fulfill his or her calling. Paul writes that the Bible can make the Christian “complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). And the writer to the Hebrews praises God for making Christians complete “to do His will” (Hebrews 13:21).
Whatever God has called you to do, He will furnish you completely with the resources to do it.
God’s purposes always have God’s provision.
Acts 20 – 21
