Breakthrough Servant Blueprint

This blog entry and the ones that follow are excerpts from
Appendix B of my new book, 2,000 Percent Living.

“Who then is a faithful and wise servant,
whom his master made ruler over his household,
to give them food in due season?
Blessed is that servant whom his master,
when he comes, will find so doing.
Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him
ruler over all his goods.
But if that evil servant says in his heart,
‘My master is delaying his coming,’
and begins to beat his fellow servants,
and to eat and drink with the drunkards,
the master of that servant will come on a day
when he is not looking for him
and at an hour that he is not aware of,
and will cut him in two and
appoint him his portion with the hypocrites.
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
— Matthew 24:45-51 (NKJV)

Christians benefit by engaging in work on righteous
breakthroughs for Him by becoming more focused on the
Lord, one of God’s great gifts for helping us avoid this
world’s temptations to sin. We see added encouragement
to develop righteous breakthroughs from the parable in
Matthew 24:45-51 where Jesus describes a faithful
servant as someone who serves righteously whether or
not the master is present. This parable presents a
personal challenge because most people have little formal
authority over directing that a righteous breakthrough
be sought and applied in their working lives. When we are
not in charge of an organization or a task, how can we
serve as faithful servant believers in developing the
righteous breakthroughs that serve His purposes?

In this blueprint, you will learn about how you can stand
on the solid rock of your dependence on the Lord to be a
faithful, righteous servant for Him and His people as
described in the parable by helping make righteous
breakthroughs. In doing so, apply the Golden Rule as
defined by our Lord:

“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also
to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”
(Matthew 7:12, NKJV)

In performing your various life roles, look at what needs
to be done from the perspective of all those who will be
affected and act according to the rule. Let’s look at some
helpful steps for following Him in this way.
