Topic: The Benefits Of Living To Impact Lives [Friday April 27, 2018]
Scripture: I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35.
Thought For The Day: The best of life answers to the best of man.
The Scriptures make it clear that there are benefits or rewards of working for God. No one can be stranded who faithfully works for God in life. This means, when you live to impact the lives of others, God does not leave you empty-handed in life.
Now, what are the benefits of living to impact lives? How does living to impact the lives of others affect your health and vitality in particular?
- Giving is Living
Quality giving equals quality living. When Paul was stoned and dragged out of the city as if he had died, the people he had impacted surrounded him and he stood up (Acts 14:20). The people whose lives he had touched flooded life back to him. The best of life answers to the best of man. The seed of a person creates a way for him to survive when he is meant to be forgotten. The people you impact in times of progress are those who will impact you in times of problem.
Love is key to Health and Life
The proof of genuine love is sacrifice and giving. (John 3:16). You touch lives not just for show but because you love them. And love is key to health and life. (1 John3:14).
So, the love-life is the real life. Living to love is loving to live. When a person lives to love, the love he shows makes him to live. You cannot receive love and receive death. The release of love is the reception of life. Love changes life.
Beloved, make up your mind to apply these secrets of living.
Remember this: The best of life answers to the best of man.
1. Decide to live a lifestyle of giving always.
2. Decide to love your neighbour as commanded by the Master.
Prayer: O Lord, thank You for the privilege of knowing Your Mind concerning the life of impact. Give me Lord, the grace to be a doer of Your Word continually, Lord in Jesus Name.
