Word 4U Today

He Said It – Others

He Said It – Others

The past two days have been a bit inwardly focused, all about what God’s saying over your life. That’s not a bad thing, at all. But what happens when we fold that out, open up the map to other things? What are we, as Christians, supposed to do about God’s plans for other people?

Well, in true 2 Corinthians 9 spirit, we think it’s a really good idea to get alongside anyone who is working towards fulfilling something that God’s said about them.

If we’re generous with our prayers,

our encouragement, and whatever else we can be generous with,

the world around us will start to look a lot more like God wants it to.

Paul goes on to say that we ‘will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.’ (2 Corinthians 9:11 NIV).

You will definitely have something that can help someone else – God made us that way. We weren’t given our gifts, skills, or money for ourselves, but to serve others. If we keep these things for us, we’re wasting their potential to show off God in our lives. Check out Matthew 25:14-30 – how can you be faithful in the small things?

What Now?

Grab a couple of your Christian friends, and spend some time talking and praying about the ways that God has called you. Make a list of ways that you can practically support each other in working towards those callings, and to make sure that the support definitely happens.

Verse of the Day:

‘…In all things at all times, having all that you need…’  2 Corinthians 9:8 NIV
