What Did Jesus Teach About Repentance With the Parable of the Unjust Steward?
In a past composing we took a gander at repenting. Apology was one of Jesus’ central messages traversing his whole service. Atonement was likewise a basic aspect of John’s and the Church’s message to the world. Be that as it may, what would we be able to gain from Jesus about apology by Jesus teaching of the illustration of the low steward, Luke 16:1-13?
Let us attempt to comprehend this illustration (partially) by understanding who is a steward. In contemporary language he would be an individual whose activity jobs are those of a bookkeeper join with those of a chief.
Adherents are Accused Everyday. An allegation was made against this “steward.” It was accounted for “he had squandered” his manager’s “merchandise.” Satan is the Believers informer. He charged us “before our God day and night,” Revelation 12:10.
The Lord God has given man territory and power and made him “steward” of the earth. He has likewise positioned the duty of the predetermination of his spirit in man’s charge by the intensity of decision and atonement when he passed on in our place on Calvary. As “stewards” are on the whole responsible to the Lord Jesus.
This “rich man” called his steward and expected him to “give a record of” his “stewardship,” Luke 16:2. As such, this rich individual is stating to his worker, exhibit to me that you have been a powerful and proficient director of my riches, of every one of my assets.
As Christians, we will all remain before the Lord Jesus Christ, in the Judgment, to give record within recent memory on earth as steward of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and for the decisions we make concerning the predetermination of our spirits.
What are You Resolved to Do? In this anecdote, the unreasonable steward “settled” inside himself his next strategy. He chose what he planned to do. He was completely convinced of his best course of action. This is the point we have to reach before contrition can occur. Atonement can’t occur when an individual is of two suppositions since one can’t abandon sin and grasp or obey God in the event that he is uncertain what he is abandoning. One must be sure he would not like to proceed in his present way of life, he should be discerning of a need to change and change at this moment. So this steward apologized for his lazy ways and made speedy and successful changes to keep up his activity. The manager was intrigued and commended him for his “savvy” choices.
Likewise, when you hear the Word of God, and are “pricked” or sentenced or convinced in your heart to follow up on what you heard, don’t spare a moment. To make changes to your way of life dependent on the Word of God is the thing that atonement is about. As a result, you are surrendering your earlier ways (way of life) and convictions and by your present activities are complying with God’s order to you.
By Faith Confession and Repentance Remove our Sins.
At last, the treacherous steward with an end goal to spare his stewardship “called all of his master’s account holders” and exchanged their obligations with a rebate. This he had the ability to do as the steward and it seems to be “shrewd” to get somewhat less than get nothing by any means. What have you done in submission to the Word of God that you have heard? Have you atoned? Did you change your evil ways and go to God? Whatever your response to the Word of God was, you should give the Lord a record of your choices and activities in the judgment.
In spite of the reality the Steward ought to have had information and record of all his supervisor’s obligations and borrowers he praised him. As a steward tracking everything, including the entirety of the “rich man’s” riches and account holders, is an urgent part of his activity work which he fails to do.
