INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … Be an all-round Christian
Text(s) for today: Eph. 4:11-16
“…you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you – see that you also excel in this grace of giving.” 2 Cor. 8:7
It is easy to find Christians who are strong in every area of their Christian lives but fail woefully when it comes to giving. They can pray very well, they are excellent in sharing the Word, they talk politely, you just name it, but have not trained themselves to also excel in this grace of giving.
You can excel in this grace of giving. You can be the best when it comes to giving also. You can be an all-round Christian. That’s what God wants from you. You can become exactly what God wants you to be. Make that your focus.
What you must realise is that it is your responsibility to be an all-round Christian and not the responsibility of any other .
Apostle Paul says:
…SEE (to it) that YOU ALSO EXCEL IN this grace…” 2 Cor. 8:7
That is to say, you must ensure you don’t fail in this aspect of your Christian life.
Be generous to every one you meet in this life: let your money and wisdom help improve the lives of other.
Don’t be interested in your own success – be concerned also about the course/classmate who you know fails all the time and help him. Give to support your church, fellowship or denomination. Let your money support the gospel. That’s how to make blessings of God overwhelm you. Praise God!
Prayer & Confessions (pray out loudly)
In the name of the Lord Jesus I receive more grace for giving. I receive the Word of love into my heart. I’m growing into a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ (Eph. 4:13). Amen!
