“Great Expectations”

"...From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more." Luke 12:48

Do you know that God expects great things from you? For all talents, times, health, knowledge, help and support, God expects you to use such blessings to bear good fruit for Him. In Isaiah 5 we see this thought given through a parable about a vineyard. The owner of the vineyard put a lot of work into it, with the expectation that these vines would produce good fruit. However, it didn't. Thus the Master allowed the vineyard to become consumed with thorns, weeds, and overcome by drought. (Isaiah 5:3-4)

What's the point of that parable and Jesus' statement in Luke 12? God has great expectations for you. He expects you to use your time and talent to produce good fruit. Are you someone who has multiple talents, blessed in many areas of your life? God has great expectations for you. Are you a one talent person who may not be best at a lot of things, but is great at a few? God has great expectations for you as well. A church that is blessed with elders, deacons and preachers, growing in size and strength; God has great expectations for you. Don't let the blessings God has given you go to waste. Be busy today bearing good fruit in obedience to God. Use the talents, time, and opportunities of today to the glory of God. What will be said of your vine? Is it producing much fruit? What will God say of how you've used your time, your talents, the open doors you've received? God expects great things from you, why not be active in those righteous and noble deeds today?
