iamjessicasturdy The Parable of the Talents: Matthew 25:14-30
The Parable of the Talents warns us that our place & service in heaven will depend on our faithfulness & service on earth. A talent represents our abilities, time, resources & opportunities to serve God & others while on earth. God has entrusted all these things to us, & he expects us to use & apply these gifts in the wisest possible way. The Master repsents God, but God is not a hard working master who harvests where he has not planted or takes what he has not worked for (v24). This was the judgment of the foolish servant who did not have a proper understanding & relationship with his master in the first place. The Master never admitted to the servants incorrect judgment of his master, but only repeated the lazy servants words back to him in a form of a question. (v26). (v29) - Jesus teaches us a principal about a Christians reward & position in heaven. What we receive in the future kingdom of God will depend on how much we lay hold of & pursue God's purposes. What we do to benefit God's kingdom on earth will affect the "benefit" we receive in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus is making a point that a Christians reward in heaven will be in proportion to their present commitment to God & faithfulness to use what they have been given regardless whether it is a lot or little.What ever God has given you, use it. don't bury it in the ground and not just used. Be faithful with the little & be faithful with the lot. USE WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU. Your talent is God's gift to you.What you do with it is your gift back to God. dont bury the gift.

iamjessicasturdy "So you also outwardly appear righteous and godly to others, but within you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness." - Matt. 23.28
Jesus & His harsh but true words were about the religious leaders and ministers of His day. Their public conduct appeared righteous and godly, but their hearts were full of pride, lust and wickedness. He talks about them being hypocrites. Jesus used this term for people who were putting on an act in public that was only a pretence; (an attempt to make something that is not the case appear true.) Their religious appearance was a mask that concealed their spiritual blindness and the corruption within their hearts. His words here express His strongest accusations against those who acted as if they were devoted to God but resisted everything Jesus teaches. These same words and scripture apply to us today. We can appear all righteous and godly on the outside (public life), but on the inside (private life/life outside of God) we can have pride, lust, anger, wickedness inside our hearts. We can act out to be the perfect Christian, tell people not to do certain things, but we do the things we tell them not to do. (23.3: For they preach, but do not practice.) << you can preach an amazing sermon, but if you ain't living it, you are basically being a hypocrite as you aren't doing the very thing you are telling people, you aren't living out what you are speaking and people will see that. We need to be Christians full time! public and private. we need to practice what we preach, we need to stop acting, and start living the life God has called us to live.

iamjessicasturdy The church is the Creature of the Word. She is alive. a living breathing movement of God's people redeemed & placed together in collective community. But she is not only alive in her own doing. She has been made alive by the WORD. God spoke her out into existence through the declaration of the gospel - His righteousness on our behalf. The more the Church is tapped into the gospel, the more transformative power will be present by the holy spirit in that Church. But the more the Church gets away from yhe centrality of the gospel, the more a church will run on fumes, seeing people confirmed to a pattern of religion rather than transformed by the spirit of God.

iamjessicasturdy People find God of the Bible a bit too edgy for modern sensibilities. So instead of submitting to Him, we are drawn towards creating a "God" we like better, choosing to be ignorant of who He really is. We pull back on the wrathful, vengeful stuff, for instance - the God who's angry towards sin (Psa 7:11). People don't want that kind of stuff - maybe in their movies, but not in their Maker. For many, Jesus is more like a masculine tinker bell, sprinkleing pixie dust of love on everyone he meets, who doesn't want a safe tinker bell? The problem is however, if we strip Jesus of His deity, we also strip Him of His Authority & power. If we change our perception of who He actually is, we can not be free to worship Him genuinely. We end up missing out on real depth of relationship with Him. Our churches end up with a God who is safe, but weak; domesticated, but limited.

iamjessicasturdy "It shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave,even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” - Matthew 20:26-28

In God's kingdom greatness is not measured by authority over others, but by serving people and putting people above yourself. Christian's should not try to reach the top in order to achieve power and influence over others. The greatest influence comes from HUMILITY & SERVICE.
Jesus didn't come to be served upon, He came to serve. He shows us, what servant-hood should look like. He is the example we should look to when it comes to humility and serving for the Kingdom of God.

iamjessicasturdy Gotta share this! So many people think we gotta become children (childish) but God says LIKE . CHILDLIKE not Childish. He wants us to go back to the start, to become CHILDLIKE. Have a childlike attitude. Which is (Trusting, humble, honest. Loving, forgiving, lowly, teachable). This needs to happen so Christ can transform us, so he can mould us. Jesus requires 2 things. RADICALLY turning away from everything that is selfish and ungodly and DELIBERATELY turning towards God. This means doing what is right by His standards & producing spiritual fruit (character) as edvidence of true repentance.
We need to become childlike not Childish. There is a difference. Look at how children, trust, love, forgive, humble themselves. That is the character God wants to mould us into.

iamjessicasturdy Love jesuss word choice. You faithless & twisted generation. great way to get someone's attention. Love this passage.
V17: why couldn't the disciples cast out the demon? their lack of faith. They did not have faith that God would deliever the boy from a demon. The size of faith you have doesn't matter, but it is the TRUE FAITH that is required. V20: true faith is not the belief in faith, but faith in God. God must be the object and focus of our faith if we want to walk in the same authority Jesus did. True faith is under God's control. True faith is an effective faith that producers results. It's no how much faith we have, but what we do with it, we just direct it toward God himself. He must be both the source & the object of our faith. True faith is a work of God within the hearts of His kids. It involves a God given awareness within our hearts that he hears & answers our prayers. We need not just faith, but TRUE FAITH. when we have true faith, as small as a mustard seed, we are able to then do the impossible through God.

iamjessicasturdy So rushed to settle down that you end up setting! This is so true. People are in such a rush to settle down all because people tell them to. They say, lower your standards, you're getting older, hurry up! when did people's opinions matter instead of God's? When did we allow people to be our match maker instead of God?
who is the ultimate match maker? Who did we see all through the bible creating relationships? GOD Himself. God himself is the ultimate match maker. As a matter of fact, He already has it written out in His blueprint for your life. so why do we trust people's opinions instead of God's timing and what He thinks about it? You wont have to settle or lower your standards when God places the right person in your life. That person will go above your standards. If he is Godly man, he will go to your father or spiritual parents & even pastors to ask permission to court you (date). He will pray and seek God's word. If she is a Godly woman, she will trust in God's timing, let the man do the pursing, seek God & trust His word. Stop settling and lowing your standards just so you can settle down. because in the end, that relationship proberly wasn't even built on a friendship that was centred about God. Because if it was, you wouldn't have had to lower your standards and settle. This whole thing, goes for both women and men.

iamjessicasturdy Build a solid friendship on God. Why? Because that foundation will be so strong that nothing will break it, tear it down or destroy it when marriage comes along. Build that friendship foundation on God.

iamjessicasturdy we ask for more faith, but faith is not the only thing we need. cause faith isn't going to ask for wisdom, wisdom will ask for faith. Faith is something that you need, but if you don't have any wisdom, you then look foolish because your faith wasn't based on anything God wanted you to do.

iamjessicasturdy There is a difference to the Call of God and the Peace of God.
The call of God won't always feel good. The call of God isnt going to match up with your feelings.
The peace of God is the after affect of your obedience. Peace will always follow obedience and faith. When you obey the Call of God even when you feel no peace, and you obey anyway, peace will follow. We govern our discussions based on if we feel peace about instead of faith and obedience to the call.
