6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. – 2 Corinthians 9:6 (ESV)
Our God has called us to the work of multiplication. We have a saying around here that living things grow and growing things multiply. Indeed, we long for Mission Church to be alive and growing in our commitment to Jesus. Ultimately, as we grow in Christ, our goal is to multiply our impact for the mission of Jesus. We long to make disciples. Is there a greater joy than seeing more people saved, strengthened, sanctified, serving, and worshiping the Lord? No way! It is the absolute best.
The bottom line is that the Lord desires to multiply our impact for Him. The question is how?
2 Corinthians 9:6 tells us that we reap what we sow. If we want to reap a harvest of impact, we must sow seeds of impact. If we want to reach our families, then we need to sow love and gospel grace. If we want to impact our communities, we need to be willing to spend time and give ourselves to serving others. If we want to strengthen our church, raise up leaders, and commission church-planters, we will need to make significant investments of time, training, and treasure to accomplish the work.
This week, we are going to learn that the road to multiplication is paved with generosity. God loves a cheerful contributor, and I believe He’s calling us as a church to invest ourselves in His mission. God’s Word is so clear: the greater our investment of faith, the greater the missional multiplication will be. Friends, this principle is not foreign to us. When we are passionate about something, we give ourselves to it. For example, last night I dropped my son off at an off-season training event for soccer. He wants to get better and be more useful to the team so that he can “multiply his impact” in order to get more playing time and help his team win. Will it work? All I can say is that he will reap what he sows.The more he gives to the effort, the stronger his growth and impact will be. The same is true for us and the mission of God. As we generously commit to the mission, commit to maturity, and commit to ministry, the inevitable result will be Christ working through us to multiply His Kingdom to the glory of God. Man, I am fired up for Sunday!
Be sure to listen to the worship set as you prepare for worship.
Love you, Church.
