Topic: GIVING IS RECEIVING
Text: John 4:1-4
📖1….”When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
📖2….(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
📖3….He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
📖4….And he must needs go through Samaria.”
🔥Our Lord and Saviour is always on the move either to bless, heal, protect, or save someone that has positively affected his kingdom in one way or the other. And I am persuaded, child of God, that today, Jesus is out for the lifting up of our families this month. He is coming to your home to stop you from seeking help from man (John 4:10). But he will do it in such a way that you will think he is in need. See how he first asked from the woman in verse 7 of John 4, what he actually came to give to her. BELOVED BoLD READERS, EXPECT TO BE BLESSED FROM WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO GIVE TO GOD THIS WEEK IN CHURCH.
🔥🔥Jesus was able to climax in his mission to earth because, he knew the secret of receiving from God. While on earth, he saw men hoarding greedily what they had, but he decided to live the direct opposite of such men. Jesus knowing that the secret of receiving, is giving, gave his life for us…Matt 20:28, and God gave him a name that is above all names in Phil 2:9. This is the fulfilment of Acts 20:35 that says, it is more blessed to give than to receive. As our forerunner, we ought to also imitate him (Ephesians 5:1), by giving, in other to receive. When Abraham gave out Isaac in Gen 22:15-18, he first received an instant ram (Gen 22:13), and became an everlasting source of blessing to all humans who believe.
🔥🔥🔥In our anchor text from John 4:1-4, Jesus was though billed to go to Galilee, but the recurring nasty marital problems of a woman of Samaria, who lived in Sychar, attracted him to go through Samaria. In the same vein, Jesus must pass through your business, marriage, job, education, womb, children, etc, today because the time to favour you; yes, the set time has come. Whatever he asks, as he comes, don’t hesitate to give him, so you will also receive your desires from him. When he asked Simon Peter for his boat, he returned the favour with over two ships load of fishes in Luke 5:1-7. So, once you give to him, you must also receive from him.
🙏Lord Jesus, pay me a destiny transforming visit this season in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Dearest Father, use my giving in the Church this week to reciprocate me with your abundant blessings, favours and promotions, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Ancient of days, as you used your asking to bless Peter with fishes, show me your need I need to meet in my Church that will provoke your floodgate of blessings to open upon me this week, in Jesus’ name.
