A Word from Pastor Rick

 

In light of our Missions Faith Promises I want us to look at these Scriptures and see what God
is saying to us. 2 Corinthians 9:10-12 (NKJV) "Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God..." God is saying to us that it is He Who gives us what we have to share with others through missions or benevolence in the first place. But when we are faithful to give away His blessings to us something supernatural happens...what is it?

God has the power and He is more than glad to use it by demonstrating one of His divine principles...that when we give He gives back pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give back to you. He multiplies our seed (our money) so that we have an opportunity to be generous every time an opportunity arises to bless our missionaries or help the poor. Being raised on the farm helped me to understand this pressed down, shaken together, and running over concept. Understanding my dad was not a Christian at the time...when we sold to Piggly Wiggly the baskets were not pressed down but fluffed up, not shaken together but barely moved, and not running over but scarcely at the top of the basket. If it was true friends or family it was definitely running over with blessings.

As we are faithful with 10% of our income and give above that to Missions, God supernaturally multiplies our finances. This not only meets the needs that are presented but
also causes thanksgiving through us to God...worship! I am not a prophet nor
the son of a prophet but hear your pastor...because of your obedience to

provide money to reach the lost around the world...God is going to multiply your seed (bless you) and He is going to bless His Church! Why? So we can bless even more! Get ready to get out of the boat and to experience God’s multiplication!!!
