Acts 1:13-17, 21-26

MATHIAS CHOSEN TO REPLACE JUDAS

“Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Mathias; so he was added to the eleven apostles”. Acts 1:26, NIV.

It’s a popular saying that “No one is indispensable”. We studied two weeks ago how Judas lost his apostolic position because of his love for money. He traded his anointing and calling for thirty pieces of silver when he betrayed his Master, Jesus. He was meant to be part of the twelve disciples earlier chosen by Jesus to propagate the gospel around the world after His ascension; but he lost this great calling and ended his life in disgrace. Today’s passage explains how his noble position was replaced with Matthias. It is important to know that Matthias had also been a consistent follower of the Lord Jesus (Acts 1:21).
Today’s lesson teaches us to cherish whatever God has committed to our hands and be faithful in its discharge. Judas preferred worldly gains to godliness and so he lost his place to Matthias who remained tenacious in his walk with God. It also reminds us that we should not lobby for position in the body of Christ; when the right time comes and we are found worthy we shall be called upon for higher service. Are you faithful in the assignment God has committed into your hands? Are you not taking the grace of God in vain? Remember that God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.
