Giving, not Getting is the Way – Pastor Biodun Lawal
You must grow as the ministry is growing. Increase your relevance. Understand the importance of partnership. Don’t look for how to climb the stage for recognition. Share the values, priorities, vision, commitment and convictions of the one you’re partnering with.
Timeless and excellent delivery is what is required. It’s about sponsoring the message, not about climbing the stage for recognition.
What’s your response to information and instructions? That’s how you increase your relevance.
Take decisions based on information and instructions and act on them.
Follow up is another key area. Find out information and act on them to remain relevant. There are grace to every area you’ll be faithful to. Act on instructions and information. That’s faith.
The next area is feedback. Give and receive feedback. A lot depends on it.
Ever increasing prosperity. Have you moved from where you were last year?
2 Cor 9:6-9
Don’t just think about it, give. God’s able to make all grace abound towards you. You’ll always have to give. You’ll be all sufficient. You’ll have and be relevant in all things.
Desire to have all grace for all the arms of the ministry. I have all grace. Not some grace. You’ll always receive when you give.
Your acknowledgement is vital. You need to be conscious of your roles and responsibilities. It’s not about the city. If there’s no money in that city, then you’re the problem. God will hold you responsible for the prosperity of your city like He did in the days of Elisha who prophesied only when he saw the sword.
Confession, which is your faith proclamation is the next vital requirement. God promotes you by your faith. We don’t withdraw. Our influence keeps increasing. Our impact keeps multiplying. We have the ability of God in our spirits. Relevance and productivity.
Ever increasing prosperity. Reaching for those things before us. When will your pastor remembers your giving and speak in tongues for one hour?
There’s no other way, let no one deceive you. Jesus says that to those who have, more will be given. Giving, not getting, is the way.
Through your giving, you don’t need to do anything. Harvest time comes effortlessly to you…
