This series is based on Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. NKJV Unfortunately many people are unaware of these laws that dominate people’s lives. If we work in agreement with the Law of the Spirit of Life, we will prosper. If we work against the Law of the Spirit of Life , then the Law of Sin and Death begins to work in our life. The good news is that when we understand these spiritual laws we are then able to make the right choice.
The Lord’s blessings are on those who give.
Prov 22: 9 Blessed are those who are generous, because they feed the poor. NLT
Prov 28:27 If you give to the poor, your needs will be supplied! But a curse upon those who close their eyes to poverty. TLB
Giving to the poor brings God’s favor into your life.
Prov 19: 17 When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord‑and he pays wonderful interest on your loan! TLB
Notice how Job prospered because he had compassion on the needy.
Job 31:16 “Have I refused to help the poor, or crushed the hopes of widows? 17 Have I been stingy with my food and refused to share it with orphans? 18 No, from childhood I have cared for orphans like a father, and all my life I have cared for widows. 19 Whenever I saw the homeless without clothes
and the needy with nothing to wear, 20 did they not praise me for providing wool clothing to keep them warm? 21 “If I raised my hand against an orphan, knowing the judges would take my side, 22 then let my shoulder be wrenched out of place! Let my arm be torn from its socket! 23 That would be better than facing God’s judgment. NLT
Give generously and it will come back to you with a profit.
Eccl 11:1 Give generously, for your gifts will return to you later. 2 Divide your gifts among many, for in the days ahead you yourself may need much help. TLB
Luke 6:38 For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use to give
large or small it will be used to measure what is given back to you.” TLB
No gift large or small given in the spirit of love will be overlooked.
Matt 10: 42 “And if, as my representatives, you give even a cup of cold water to a little child, you will surely be rewarded.” TLB
Jesus taught that giving is an act of dedication to the Lord. Such giving has rewards now and in the world to come.
Mark 10: 28 Then Peter began to mention all that he and the other disciples had left behind. “We’ve given up everything to follow you,” he said.
29 And Jesus replied, “Let me assure you that no one has ever given up anything‑home, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, or property‑for love of me and to tell others the Good News, 30 who won’t be given back, a hundred times over, homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land‑with persecutions!
“All these will be his here on earth, and in the world to come he shall have eternal life. 31 But many people who seem to be important now will be the least important then; and many who are considered least here shall be greatest there.” TLB
Giving in whatever form falls under the law of sowing and reaping.
