"In all things I gave you an example, that so laboring you ought to help the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’"Acts 20:35
God gives to us and so we in turn are instructed to give to others. Freely we have received, so freely we are to give and this means everything: money, time, instruction, learning, lessons, etc. As we go out, let us give and give and never stop giving, knowing that God never stops giving to us. Jesus Himself said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Blessed means happy, abundant, full of all that God has to offer. As we consider this week’s movement principle, let us consider how creating multiplying movements is a continuous outward giving. We introduce Jesus to others and give to those we meet; then, they give to others and so on and so on. Holy Spirit leads us into all Truth. He is our Teacher and Guide. Jesus is the Center, not we ourselves. We can have open handed generosity and trust that He is able to teach and guide new believers as we encourage them to listen to Him and obey, sharing what they are learning with others. Today, ask God to fill you with His Holy Spirit of generosity. Multiply new disciples that become effective disciple makers and release them to go and do likewise. New fellowships multiply other new fellowships. God’s life in them continues to flow outward and Kingdom transformation results.
Disciple's Prayer for Today:
"Father, I long to know you and to make you known on this earth in the time that you’ve so graciously and generously given me. I ask that you would open my heart and my hands today to allow me to both receive from you and then give out to others all you’ve given me. I ask for more and more of You so that I can give more and more of you to others around me. Fill me with more of your Holy Spirit today! Multiply through me new followers and in turn new fellowships of followers in Jesus’ name I ask, Amen.”
Prayer for the Unreached of the Day:
"Father, I am here in obedience to your Word. I stand firm in my faith in You and in the faith I have that you hear my prayers, Turn Your eyes to the Tubu Teda peoples of Nigeria. God, they are small in number but so precious to You. Turn Your love and power on them today. Light a spark among them. Send Jesus followers to start multiplying disciples, fellowships, and movements among them. Cause Your Church, Your Bride to grow here among these people. May they in turn lead many others to know, love and follow Jesus for His glory among the nations, Amen."
