WHY DOES SOWING AND REAPING WORK?! PART 2

For the most part, we have focused on the CHARACTER of God in GIVING.

And that’s perfect. Whatever Bible doctrine we discuss must never CONTRAVENE the eternal personality of God revealed in Christ.

God GIVES FREELY!!

Romans 8:32 (KJV) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

1 Corinthians 2:12 (KJV) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

James 1:5 (KJV) If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Matthew 10:8 (KJV) Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

These are sound Facts!!

More evidently, the gifts of God cannot be purchased with MONEY!! IT’S AN ABOMINATION.

A Pseudo – believer once tried this and got a strong rebuke from the Apostle Peter.

Acts 8:20-21 (KJV) But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.
Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.

Simeon the sorcerer had been baptized with the other faithful, but he was not truly a Believer, Apostle Peter could discern him, he only sought the opportunity to expand his sorcery business in a new dimension.

Thus.

It’s clear, so clear that God GIVES FREELY.

So much more, He is kind to His enemies.

Matthew 5:45, 48 (KJV) That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Very clear truths.

Very fundamental.

However, in the matter of EXPERIENCING GOD’S SUPERNATURAL SUPPLY, WE OFTEN FOCUS ONLY ON ONE PART OF THE EQUATION; THE NATURE OF THE GIVER!

THE PERSON OF THE GIVER!!

THE AUTHORITY OF THE GIVER!!

The question we have not always answered is ‘DOES THE RECEIVER HAVE A MAJOR PART TO PLAY IN THESE MATTERS’?!

Let’s continue, next post.
