Scripture: Luke 16:5-9
The unjust servant in Luke 16:5-9 had a plan. His plan was mammon based. He determined he would call each one of his master’s debtors and he would cut the bill in half, or reduce it by a dramatic percentage and thus gain their favor and so they would all owe him. Jesus commended the unjust steward because of his shrewdness and he basically said that the world was more developed in the use of the spirit of mammon than the church is in submitting to the Spirit of God. The problem with the spirit of mammon is that it takes you into the everlasting habitations of hell and forfeits all authority. When we obey God’s Word in giving and allow the Holy Spirit to dictate our finances, true worship ascends while mammon is crucified. What we do with mammon dictates our eternity. If there’s ever a deliverance that you and I have to walk through, it is this one! Because at the end of this test, comes the judicial authority and the use of the keys. I trust we are passing it!
