22nd of September 2018 

Title: Profitable Servant (worker's meeting)

Main Text: Matthew 25:14-30

Preacher: Pastor Daniel Gbolahan

Not everyone in hell is there because they committed sexual immorality, theft, drug abuse and other things we would consider detestable.

The main text tells us of a servant cast in hell because he refused to use his talents unto God's profit. (Matt 25:14-30)

Profit means to be useful, of service or of benefit.
Anything of profit brings return to the investor
It is the proceed from investment, and anyone in business, understands the meaning of profit.

Foundation of Profitability To God
1) You must know the scripture (2 Tim 3:16-17)
To be profitable to God without taking time to learn His scripture, you are simply wasting your time. (2 Chron 25:1-2).
You cannot be profitable to God without learning the scripture.

2) Knowing The Lord must become your priority.
Do not put service before knowing God -(1 Chron 28.9, 2 Sam 6:1-10, Acts 20.20)

3) Be ready for persecution/trials from the Enemy, The Devil (Psalms 11:1-2).

4) Serving God on your terms is not acceptable to Him. He sets the rules (Matt 21:12-13).
If you hired a servant or an apprentice, does he work as he feels or based on your terms?
You do not dictate to God how you want to serve Him. 

5) His work takes precedence over my work. His will takes precedence over my will. My will must be subject to His Will (John 4:24)
