Man as God's Tenant


Possession alone does not imply ownership.

Possession plus total control will then mean true ownership.

God breathed into man’s nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Man became the temporary possessor of the life given to him.

Man’s tenancy of the given life is seemingly permanent.

This tenancy is short term compared to eternity.

A landlord leases his house to a tenant for a specified period of time.

The duration might be lengthy yet measurable.

All that is within the leased house is temporarily possessed by the tenant.

It’s unwise of such tenant(s) to think or believe that he fully owns those things handed over to him.

Man’s tenancy in regards to God is not just short but also accountable.

Remember the parable of the talents.

The actual fact is that the master owns those distributed talents.

Those servants only possessed those talents.

They don’t own what they were given.

They accounted for what they were given.

Our sojourning here on earth is in the similitude of the servants with talents.

There is a definite reward for being faithful servants.

Moreover, it’s a great privilege to be partakers in God’s husbandry.

It’s likewise a privilege of partnership.

Never let us think God’s work will be left undone without us.

“And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”

God is all sufficient in and by Himself.

Man has never and will never for once complete God at its least.

Man is made complete in God and with God.

Accountability of man’s tenancy goes beyond the life given but what he did with that life.

Though the given life was handed over to man, he does not have total control.

God oversees and order life’s occurrences.

Best and blessed for being faithful.
