DAY 24 WEDNESDAY: JUNE 2020

YOU ARE THE INSTRUMENT FOR GOOD WORK!

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8).

 God has called and commissioned you as an instrument for good work in life. Your life had been destined to become a channel of blessing to others. God did not destine you for a life of failure but to a life of success, victory and prosperity. The Bible says in the opening text that God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is indeed an instrument for good work in life. He is expected to know that he is an instrument for good work in life forever.

A Christian is expected to know the fact that he is an instrument for good work in life. One of the best ways to live the life of good work is by giving. That is why the Bible says in Acts 20:35, “I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Therefore, a life that gives is a life that is divinely blessed by God in all ramifications in life. A Christian should endeavor to be diligent and resourceful in order to become a blessing to the society in life. A life of giving is a life that is resourceful and blessed by God forever.

God expects us as Christians to be generous in our giving. We should never be like the Dead Sea which receives from every angle but refuses to give out in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Proverbs 11:25, “The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself.” In fact, whenever a Christian learns to be generous by watering the lives of others in the society, his life would be blessed abundantly by God. A life of generosity is a life of abundance. Whenever you give, you are watering and you will also be watered by God Himself in life. A generous hand is a hand that is indeed blessed by God and made supreme in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is an instrument for good work; therefore, he is expected to live a life of generosity by watering lives of others who are in need forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12).
