John 1:41-42 “Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus…” (emphasis added).
Yesterday, I shared with you how after I got saved, I could not keep Jesus to myself. Andrew went looking for his brother, Simon, and told him, so did I. Guess what? Today, my brother is a Pastor and he is pastoring a great church. You never know what God is going to do with that your relative. Strangely, some people do not even want to bring their family or friends to church, to Jesus. Some say, “I should bring them to church? This is my own joker, this is what I use to checkmate them. I should bring them to church so they can be praying all these prayers I am praying? No, I cannot do that. They cannot be drinking from the river of life like I am drinking. Do you know how they marvel when they see me, always commenting about how I am shining?” Something is wrong with that kind of thinking. So your church has become your competitive advantage when God wants it to be a blessing through you to many generations
In 2 Kings 6:23-33 – 2 Kings 7 [please read], we see an account of a time when hard times had fallen on God’s people. It was so bad that people were eating their own children. However, our focus is on the four lepers that were at the city gate. These men could not enter the city because they were banished. In fact, entering the city would mean getting stoned to death. However, staying at the city gate also meant being the first casualties when the war comes. So, they reasoned that there may be a fifty percent chance of survival if they go to the enemy camp. The enemy could choose to have mercy and feed them or not and kill them. Whichever way, they would die anyway, so they took their chance. I love those four leapers.
When they were walking towards the enemy’s camp, God amplified their footsteps. The enemy heard a mighty army approaching and fled, abandoning their gold, silver, livestock, food, everything. Interestingly, when these four leapers got to the enemy’s camp, the first thing they did was to eat. They had no interest in the gold, clothing, silver, or livestock at that point. When a hungry man enters a situation, he does not see gold or silver. When a hungry man enters a situation, the first thing he sees is food. That is why you must ensure that you are not hungry when you enter certain situations so that you can leave the food alone and take the gold.
It was after the lepers had eaten to their fill that their focus turned to the wealth, the gold, the silver, the materials, and livestock. Then they began to carry gold, carry silver, and hide it. 2 Kings 7:9 “Finally, they said to each other, “This is not right. This is a day of good news, and we aren’t sharing it with anyone! If we wait until morning, some calamity will certainly fall upon us. Come on, let’s go back and tell the people at the palace.” And through their good news, they delivered an entire nation. Through the good news in your mouth, God will deliver nations in Jesus Name. Who do you need to tell about Jesus and who do you need to bring to God today?
Prayer: Father, help me prioritize Kingdom matters always, in Jesus Name. Amen!
