In Luke 19:11-27 Jesus told a story that was intended to correct some wrong thinking about the Kingdom of God. The central command given by the king is “Put this money to work until I come back.”
The stewardship of the gospel message and heaven’s resources have been entrusted to those who serve Jesus. We have been entrusted with a job to do until Jesus returns. According to this and numerous other teachings and parables of Jesus, he expects his faithful and wise servants to CONTINUE in that task until his return.
