Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:46


24:45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant - Which of you aspires after this character? Wise - Every moment retaining the clearest conviction, that all he now has is only intrusted to him as a steward: Faithful - Thinking, speaking, and acting continually, in a manner suitable to that conviction.

24:48 But if that evil servant - Now evil, having put away faith and a good conscience.

Discussion for Matthew 24

  • Timothy Wayne George on Matthew 24:46
    Happy is that servant, whom his Lord when He comes, shall find so doing. Jesus is telling his disciples to give meat to their household in due season. Jesus said my meat is to do the will of Him that sent Him. As the Father has sent me, even so send I you. We must be about our Father's business sharing the good news with our families. Noah preached about the coming flood, and prepared an Ark for the saving of his household. All eight souls were saved, because they believed the report. Many will not believe the report today, as it was in Noah's day, but we must be faithful until the end, and the Lord will give us the reward of the inheritance when He comes.
