The Unprofitable Servant
Updated: Sep 28, 2018
If you did not know, I have another blog (www.KristinaBolton.com/blog). This blog is a bit different. It is more of the general things that God has given me. If the Lord leads, subscribe. Between the two, you will see that I post more often than it looks. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook @authorkristinabolton. If your church or conference needs servanthood teaching, contact me.
I pray that everyone is doing well, and that God is increasing in your life. I am a firm believer that servants should grow as they minister. Elisha’s Eyes is about ministry and the minister. As God is using you, never stop learning. Keep yourselves in a submitted position to God, knowing that we will never know enough. I want to encourage all those who serve the Lord to keep pressing to be better than yesterday. Be more holy. Be more righteous. Be more humble. Be more submitted. Be more in love. Be more compassionate. Be more anything that is pleasing to our God.
The Lord has been pressing upon my spirit to talk about a particular type of servant. If you are in tune with the Spirit of God, you know there is a call for the laborers. What are the laborers? The laborers in the Kingdom of God are the servants. They are the ministers; those with an assignment from God. We have heard the scripture many times, the harvest is plenty, but the laborers are few. This is true for this hour. There is much work to be done. Souls need to be saved. Sadly, there is a lack of qualified workers in the Kingdom. The church is overpopulated with false doctrine, lies, and fraud. God is calling for the true servants of the Kingdom to awaken and arise. God is raising up servants unto Himself that won’t seek a name and reputation for themselves.
One of my favorite phrases is: Embrace your process. Whatever place you are in within your processing; take it seriously. Eat all of the Word and drink from the well of Jesus that you may be full of the Holy Spirit. And when it is your sent time, you will be fully prepared.
Now, down to business. The Lord has placed a type of servant in my spirit. Many servants today are in covenant with God for what they can get. You have people serving God but looking at the paycheck before its printed. With their mouths they say, “Yes, Lord.” But, with their hearts they say, “what will I get out of this?”. They look for houses, cars, money, and fame to glorify themselves. God has kept his end of the covenant and continued to bless, but these servants have erred away from God, as He knew they would. Because He is a fair God, He allowed these servants to prove Him right. All for the purpose of making way for another type of servant that has the same name. What is the name? It is: Unprofitable servant.
Now the bad type of unprofitable servant can be found in Matthew 25:30, “And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” This type of servant is the one that has taken money or the wealth of the Master and buried it. As I said earlier, God has done what He promised concerning this servant and yet they have been unprofitable to God.
Any company that hires a worker is looking for them to be productive. They are looking to have multiplication and profitability. So, it is in the Kingdom. He’s looking for the people who will advance the Kingdom. The Lord is looking for servants who will labor with the intent to make the Kingdom of God profit. What is that profit? Souls. Adding in people to the Kingdom is what God desires. He has invested His anointing, glory, and power into vessels for His own will and purpose. None of us are anointed for our own glory, but for the Lord’s. Nonetheless, these bad unprofitable servants have taken the Lord’s wealth and done no good. In return they have indulged in wickedness and erred from the assignment originally given.
I am here to tell you; their time is up.
God is replacing the unprofitable servant from Mathew 25:30 with the unprofitable servant from Luke 17:10; “So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.”
These are the servants that are looking for no reputation. These are the servants that are looking to gain no profit for themselves. These are the servants that are looking to please the Master. These are the servants that are looking to complete the assignment given. These are the servants that want to hear “well done.”
God is shifting and increasing what He placed in and on the bad unprofitable servant to the good unprofitable servant. The good will work signs, miracles, and wonders. They will heal the sick and raise the dead. They will exalt the name of Jesus in this last day. They are the ones that will live what they preach. They will shun sin and embrace the righteousness of God.
You may ask where are these good unprofitable servants? They have been on the back side of the desert with God. They have accepted their valley and are preparing for their trip to the mountain top. They have spent time with God. They have allowed God to make them. They have sacrificed the valuables in their life for God. And the time to reveal them to the world is now.
I want to encourage the Luke 17:10 unprofitable servants. Press. Our time is here. God is about to do some great things with us. We are about to embark on a great journey to advance the Kingdom. Suit up. Be ye ready.
Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus, to pray for your good unprofitable servants. I ask you to continue to pour your Spirit upon us. Teach us, Holy Spirit, the ways of Jesus. Give us a servant’s heart that we will please you. We seek that you may be glorified. We seek for souls to be saved and the Kingdom of Heaven advanced in the earth. Remove out of us anything that is not pleasing to you. Remove anything that would cause us to vex your Holy Spirit. Father we submit to you and ask that you have your way in our lives. We love you, God, our Father. We ask all these things and more in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
I pray that this entry has spoken something to your spirit and heart.
