The productivity and profitability of your spirituality is determined by your love walk.
SCRIPTURE: Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 1 Corinthians 13:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The productivity and profitability of your spirituality is determined by your love walk.
Yesterday, we saw that Christianity equals hypocrisy without love. And we looked at closeness to God as a factor that enhances the growth of love.
Today, we shall be looking at light from Scripture as another factor that facilitates the growth of love.
Please take note the following:
a. Light assists walk (Psalms 56:13, Psalms 89:15). Light enhances motion. Light makes us walk. Light from Scripture assists the walk of love.
b. Insight affects lifestyle. The kind of things you see in scripture affects the way you live your life (Romans 12:2). Insight from scripture affects your love life.
c. Revelation fuels action. The relevant revelation you have out of scripture is fuel for your actions in love.
d. Knowledge influences behaviour. To the extent you know, to that extent you behave (Psalm 89:15).
Sometime ago, a woman talked bitterly about someone who offended her, and she could not forgive the person. But after hearing one of the messages I preached on love, she reached out to that person. And to her surprise, the person apologised and thanked her for reaching out to her. Now, this is the point: she had succeeded in releasing herself and the other person from the grip of bitterness, thereby clearing her pathway to eternity at the frequency of the Word she heard and the corresponding action she took.
Beloved, the productivity and profitability of your spirituality is determined by your love walk. Even prayer becomes noise without love (1 Corinthians 13:1). If you know this, nobody would beg you to stop unforgiveness and bitterness.
It was when Job prayed for his friends that God turned his captivity (Job 42:10). Beloved, if you want God to turn your captivity, then avoid the lifestyle of bitterness. Embrace love!
Remember this: The productivity and profitability of your spirituality is determined by your love walk.

What you give to others determines what God will give to you in this life and in the life to come.
SCRIPTURE: But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. Luke 10:33-34
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you give to others determines what God will give to you in this life and in the life to come.
It has been confirmed that the nature of man is the nature of love because man was made in the Image of God who is Love (1 John 4:8).
Man under-lives (that is, living under his potentials) and mis-lives when he attempts to live outside his nature.
So, it is crucial to understand what love is, so we can walk in love and experience the benefits of loving.
Now, what is love all about?
Today, we shall be looking at the fact that Love is about adding to the joy and fulfilment in the lives of others.
A person who is walking in love is someone I would call a major joy contributor. That was what the Samaritan did as seen in our anchor Scripture.
You know, there are people you encounter and they take away your joy. For instance, wicked people like thieves, robbers, killers, etc.
Beloved, what you give to others determines what God will give to you in this life and in the life to come.
Ask yourself these questions: All the people around me, am I contributing to their joy or I’m contributing to their sorrow and pain? Is my wife happy that she is married to me? Is my husband more excited because I am his wife or he is afraid of returning home every day because of the terror that is waiting for him at home? Are my children happy with me? Are my friends and associates happy with my actions?
Beloved, determine to show love by adding to the joy and fulfilment of others.
Remember this: What you give to others determines what God will give to you in this life and in the life to come.
1. Put a smile or laughter on someone’s face today.
2. Look out for someone you can assist and it will bring joy to them and to God.
3. Ask God to deliver you from robbers and stealers of joy.

QUOTE: Making a difference is more profitable than making a living.
REFLECTION: To your generation, you are either a Blessing or a Burden; an asset or a concern. What have you been to all who have come in contact with your life so far? What is the memory of people regarding their encounters with you?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Grace to function as a generational asset is released for you in Jesus’ Name.

If God does not beg you to serve Him, you won’t beg Him to bless you.
SCRIPTURE: You shall serve the Lord your God and He shall bless your bread and your water… Exodus 23:25.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If God does not beg you to serve Him, you won’t beg Him to bless you.
Previously, we saw that the blessing of supernatural supplies is one benefit of being committed to Kingdom service. If God does not beg you to serve Him, you won’t beg Him to bless you.
This fact is corroborated by the following Scriptures:
If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. Job 36:11
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. Psalm 35:27
And he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye anything? And they said, Nothing. Luke 22:35
Now, I want you to take note of the following key thoughts:
1. Man’s interest in the welfare of God’s House provokes God’s interest in man’s welfare (Exodus 23:25).
Your interest in the welfare of God’s House will provoke the interest of God in your welfare. God is not a User of people; He is a Raiser of people.
2. To be involved in God’s work is to be qualified for His wages (Exodus 23:25).
If the governments of the world can pay people who work for them, then Jehovah overpays those who work for Him. And things don’t happen because they are just written; they happen to you because you know them.
Therefore, I counsel you to get the revelation of kingdom service and commit yourself to total dedication to both God and His House.
Remember this: If God does not beg you to serve Him, you won’t beg Him to bless you.
1. Go through today’s message again.
2. Make up your mind to be committed to the service of God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to serve You in Your House. Help me to be committed to cause of Your Kingdom, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: The Blessing of the Lord is in search of the work of your hands. Culled from “21 UNCOMMON KEYS TO FINANCIAL OVERFLOW” by Dr Paul Enenche.
REFLECTION: Is God in short supply of the Blessing or in short supply of authentic servants? Are you serving God in such a way that You don’t need to beg Him for the Blessing?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Every due blessing is released in this season in Jesus’ Name.

Life is in danger when faith fails because the just shall live by his faith.
SCRIPTURE: And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren. Luke 22:31-32
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Life is in danger when faith fails because the just shall live by his faith.
Faith has been confirmed to be a critical necessity to the child of God. That is why our faith must be kept healthy and alive at all times and at all cost. Seeds Of Destiny 06 April 2021
Faith must be prevented from failing because there is something called faith failure. Jesus Christ expressed the possibility of faith failure in Luke 22:32 when He told Peter, “…But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not…”
Faith failure, I believe, can be worse than a major organ failure. Faith failure is like the failure of a major organ like the heart, lung, liver or kidney.
Now, let us look at what can possibly be the resultant effects of faith failure:
1. The failure of faith puts life in danger
Life is in danger when faith fails because the just shall live by his faith (Habakkuk 2:4). So, when faith fails, life is dangerously at risk. Your faith must not fail because your life depends on your faith.
2. Victory is never in view when faith fails
1 John 5:4 says, For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
This means, defeat is a permanent feature of faith failure. When faith fails, people live, swim and revel in defeat. So, your faith must never be allowed to fail.
Beloved, my counsel to you today is, make up your mind to guard your faith against failure. Nurture your faith with the Word of God on a consistent basis.
Remember this: Life is in danger when faith fails because the just shall live by his faith.
1. Go through today’s message once again.
2. Guard your faith diligently; nurture your faith with the Word of God consistently.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to grow my faith in You and reject every form of faith failure, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
