“I grant You that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and You will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” Luke 22:29-30
God has promised that faithful believers will rule with Him in paradise, as well as reign over the nations of the earth. John promised that “they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him” (Revelation 20:6 NASB).
But bear in mind that not all believers will sit on thrones governing the nations-only the most faithful. When they stand before God, if they have rendered extraordinary service, He will say, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, and I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord” (Matthew 25:21).
Those who have served well will be set over cities; those who have given exemplary service will be made rulers of districts; those who have served most faithfully will rule over entire nations.
Are You serving Christ now so that He can trust You with great responsibility? You may be of little account, unrecognized by the powerful of this world and passed over by the ambitious, but God knows the qualities that make a true ruler—humility” compassion, and integrity.
