Well Done Good And Faithful Servant

We all pray that we will hear God's voice saying, "well done good and faithful servant". To hear these words means we have fulfilled our purpose. As Christians, we all try our best to be a faithful servant to God, and to do it well. Let the words of this poem remind you to continue with your journey of faith, so the day will come that you will hear, "well done good and faithful servant".

The Final Reward
Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2003

I’m nothing special, I’m what God has made;
The talents I have are not always displayed.
I’m not a horn-blower, I’m not one to shout,
But I work for the Lord as I travel about.

I don’t wear a halo, yet I’m promised a crown,
Because I am faithful, I’m on holy ground.
I can’t play piano, I really can’t sing,
But I count it a privilege to be serving my King.

I’m glad to make meals for those who are ill,
Or visit the lonely, empty moments to fill.
I don’t own a mansion, I don’t have much wealth,
But God has been gracious by granting me health.

I’ve promised to serve Him as long as I live,
To share of the blessings He is willing to give.
I give myself freely, to serve and to praise;
I’ll walk in His footsteps till the end of my days.

I may not get credit from earth’s selfish crowd;
I may not hear accolades spoken out loud,
No recognition for things I have done
Until I meet Jesus, God’s only Son.

That will be glory! A wonderful day!
When I am promoted my Father will say:
"Well done, faithful servant; come sit with the Lord,
You have been faithful, you’ve earned your reward."

Yes, I’ll be patient, and do what I can
To follow instructions and abide by His plan.
Man cannot thwart what God has in store,
Nothing on earth can promise us more.
Life’s disappointments He will erase,
All will be glory when we meet face to face!

Quotes About Being Faithful

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
1 Peter 1:6-7 (NIV)
Motivational Quotes From The Bible

The Bible teaches that God treats as a Father those who are his children by faith and this can also involve suffering for corrective purposes - just as happens in an ordinary human family.

Though we can't attain to the standards You set, the least we can do is to try, to be wary of sin, faithful in love, all earthly enticements deny.
