7. Stewards

1 Peter 4:7-11

This is our final message in our Devoted or Distracted series.  Our text today will teach us about Stewards. In biblical times, a steward was a person who was hired to serve the members of the owner’s household. The steward was to utilize and manage the resources of the owner to meet the needs of each of the members of his household.  

In our text, Peter tells us that we have received grace-gifts from God. And, “as each has received a gift,” we are to “use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10). So, we are stewards of the gifts God has entrusted to us. And He has entrusted them to us primarily for the benefit of others. Let’s open our hearts and minds as to how God wants us to best use our gifts to serve others.
