Give what you got!

Church Member,

There is such an abundance to share out of the worship time I've had over the last 2 days! Yet I will try to keep it short. It began with a trip to worship in Acts 3:6 But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!” 

God is not asking me to give what I dont have. God ask us to give what we do have. Do you realize the power of your Savior? Do you realize the more that you give of Him, the seemingly more that you get OF Him? 

Fast Forward to Chapter 4(You want to read chapters 3 & 4)

Acts 4:32 Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common.

So much of these passage is made of their willingness to give to meet each others needs and it should be, but don't miss the WHY. For what reason are they giving? They are giving so they can glorfiy God by knowing Him and making Him known as Savior. God gave all that He had to reach us. Likewise we should give what we have to reach others for Christ.

Are you giving of your time, talents, gifts, etc to reach others for Christ? 

Dont let the beginning of chapter 4 slip by you. The priests were interviewing Peter and John until the "Sadducees came upon them, greatly annoyed." When we elevate people to positions above what God created, they will in time use that position to elevate themselves above God. The Sadducees were a man made group. The priest were God ordained.

In short, dont let man center people guide your walk with God. They will also lead you away from Him.

Love, Serve, Go

Brian
