Grace For The Journey
I have learned a sound biblical truth over the years:
God will only give to you what He will give through you!
In other words, we are to be conduits of God’s grace; or, as someone has said, we are to be “divine distribution centers” for His many blessings.
God told Abraham in Genesis 12:2, “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.”
Abraham was blessed to be a blessing. Abraham was chosen to be one of God’s divine distribution centers, and . . .
What was true of Abraham is true of every child of God.
What we have been given from the hand of God is given to flow through us to bless the lives of all those with whom we come have contact with in our daily lives.
So . . . would those around you describe you as a conduit of God’s grace? Funny thing about being one of God’s divine distribution centers:
The more that flows through us, the more that flows to us.
In God’s economy, the more we pour into the lives of others, the more God pours into our lives.
Jesus says in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
When we keep in view all that God has given us in Christ, we find great joy and freedom in being divine distribution centers! The true mark of the society of saints is service to others – all others.
When we realize that the correct answer to Paul’s rhetorical question in 1 Corinthians 4:7 – “What do you have that you did not receive?” – is “Nothing,” we shift from being consumers to being contributors. When we understand that the greatest return in giving is the giving itself, we hold nothing back that is in the storage room of our divine distribution centers. Everything will be moved out into circulation for the good of others (that includes you) and the glory of God.
This is God Word … This is Grace for your Journey
