Eternal Rock of Ages, we come before Your Throne of Mercy. Thank You, Lord for all You have done for us. You are Alpha and Omega. We are grateful for Your guidance, protection, provisions and love all through the first half of the year.
You are indeed God, there is no one like You, Lord, like You Father. Ancient of days, thank you for this month of “Blessedness”. I have many testimonies to show of the truth in Your “Favour is life.” (Ps 30:5).
Beloved, am sure you are not left out, you have testimonies of the Lord’s goodness in your life. Cast your mind back from January to June and beginning to shout alleluia on every act of love from the Lord. You will see truly that The Lord has been so Faithful. So can you now appreciate the king of kings, the Lord of lords, the Alpha and the Omega. Praise the name of the Lord!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The month of June is rounding off today and we just want to remind you (having dwell so much on soul winning during the month), once again the reward of such service to the witness. And in case you are yet to join us in this kingdom business, please make haste while there is still time to do so.
Beloved, I was privileged to go on evangelism with some team this weekend while on a program, it was another good experience to cap the month. Those we witness to were not only blessed spiritual but also physical as the team went with some gifts items. They were delivered from the kingdom of darkness unto the Kingdom of light. They were so happy and you can see it.
Remember, whatsoever you sow, you reap. If you sow sparely; so will your harvest be and if you sow generously; you will have a bountiful harvest. Praise the Lord.
Remember this: the person who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the person who sows generously will also reap generously.—2 Corinthians 9:6
You are called to be intentional about your Christianity. You must be determined to experience the fullness of God in every area of your Christian life and never to settle for a shallow, lackadaisical relationship with Almighty God. God will bless you according to how you respond to His invitations. If He finds in you a generous heart that willingly and freely gives what it has to others, then God responds toward you in like manner.
When the apostle Paul encouraged the believers in Corinth to help the Christians in Jerusalem, he promised them that if they would sow generously, they would reap a generous return from God.
This truth holds life-changing potential for us. If we invest everything we have in our relationship with God, we will experience the full dimensions of being children of God. If our desire is to know God more intimately, and if we spend ample time studying His word, God will generously enrich our relationship with Him. If we discipline ourselves to remain in prayer even when praying is difficult, He will reward us with a deeper, more powerful prayer life. If we reconcile any broken relationships and prepare our hearts before worship, and if we participate fully and reverently in every part of worship, God promises that we will meet Him and our lives will be changed.
Why is it that some Christians grow rapidly in their Christian faith and others remain unchanged year after year? Our Christian maturity is deeply affected by what we sow. Let us choose to sow generously in everything we do in our Christian lives. The harvest we reap will be Christlikeness.
Peradventure, you are not previliage to go on evganlism now as I narrated above, you can as well either those who can go by supporting them, or give items to help those in need. This way the kingdom business moves on.
The message below highlights what you are to do to facilitate soul winning with a reward scheme:
What Is Our Role In Winning The Lost To Christ?
The book of Mark 4:26-29 gives us four helpful insights:
I. WE ARE TO FAITHFULLY SOW THE SEED ON ALL KINDS OF SOIL:
The sower’s job was not to inspect the condition of the soil, but to faithfully “scatter seed on the ground… ” (Mark 4:26b)
II. WE ARE TO STEP BACK AND ALLOW THE GOSPEL TO DO ITS WORK:
The inner-working of the Gospel upon a person’s heart is mysterious, God-directed, and beyond our control or efforts:
“Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain… “(Mark 4:27)
III.WE ARE TO OBSERVE THE SOIL:
It important for us to understand that before reaping the harvest, an orderly and timely growth process must first transpire:
“First the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.“(Mark 4:28)
IV. WE ARE TO REAP THE HARVEST:
Because of our inclination toward procrastination, we could easily miss the opportune time to reap the harvest: “Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months and then comes the harvest‘?… I tell you… the fields are ripe for harvest. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.“(John 4:35; Mark 4:29)
I am intrigued with the fact that when Christ spoke of the partnership between sower and reaper He only offered a reward to the reaper: “One sows and another reaps… The reaper draws… wages… “(John 4:37, 36)
Perhaps He knew that reapers were in scarce supply and needed the added incentive!
At any rate, let’s get out there and sow the seed, step back, observe, and… harvest!
Are you ready to be rewarded? Then don’t stop at sowing the seed only, ensure you fellow up on your converts to maturity or until well rooted activate your reward scheme as promised by the Lord. Don’t forget that when the Lord is asking you to sow or give your substance is for Him to bless you. You cannot out give God, you can only be blessed by Him.
God is a generous giver Jn 3:16, so do not delay any further, come on!!!
To God be the glory now and forever more as we wait patiently for the month of July and the promises therein!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
