Luke 12:48 …and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Regarding these words of our Lord, one person said, “You can commit some things to most people, but you can only commit most things to some people.” This seems to be why the Lord says that, when this kind of person is found, more will be asked of them.
To this day, the same Lord who said these words is looking, not just for those who will be saved and nothing more, but for those to whom He can entrust greater portions of His work; those with whom He can partner and do greater things!
Our Lord says to Nathanael in John 1:50 …thou shalt see greater things than these. When speaking to Philip and the other brethren, He said in John 14:12 …and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
It seems the Lord is constantly looking for those of whom He can “ask the more” and who will be willing to “see greater things” and do “greater works”!
As God’s people, let’s be the first ones who are willing to be found for such a glorious and fulfilling task!
