POWER COMMUNION SERVICE – 30th January 2019
MESSAGE TOPIC: DEDICATION AND GIVING TO GOD
BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE
SERVICE OBJECTIVE: Examining the connection between dedication to God and giving to God
All through scriptures we see a very strong connection between dedication to God and giving to God.
Dedication to God establishes generosity towards God; dedicated people are effortless and sacrificial givers.
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN DEDICATION AND GIVING TO GOD:
- Abraham (Gen. 22:10-12)
- David (Ps. 132:1-5; 1Chron. 29:3)
- Solomon (1 Kings 3:3-4)
When people are dedicated to God, you don’t force, cajole or beg them to give to God.
WHY DOES DEDICATION LEAD TO GIVING?
1. Dedication is donation (2Cor. 8:1-5; Prov. 23:26)
When your life is dedicated to God it means that your life has been donated to God.
When a man has given himself to God, there is nothing that is too big for him to give to God.
Dedicated people say to God ‘Lord, anything that I cannot give to you, don’t give it to me’
2. Dedication is affection (Ps. 42:1-2; 1Chron.29:3-5; 1 Kings 3:3-4; Matt. 6:21)
Dedicated people are lovers of God and lovers are givers.
Your treasure travels in the direction of your affection; your hand gives where your heart is (Matt. 6:21).

KINDS OF GIVING:
- Trade-driven giving
- Religion-driven giving
- Ego-driven giving
- Dedication-driven giving (Heb. 11:6; Isa. 48:17).
Dedication-driven giving is the kind of giving that is driven by affection.
God is too faithful to allow you to seek Him in vain; God is not a user of people, He is a Raiser of people (Heb. 11:6; Isa. 48:17).
people, He is a Raiser of people (Heb. 11:6; Isa. 48:17).
THE IMPACT OF DEDICATION-DRIVEN GIVING:
- The provocation of Divine visitation (1Kings 3:4-5; 1Sam. 3:21)
In your life, family, business, career and academic pursuits, God appears
When God appears, your frustrations must disappear
‘Oh Lord appear in my life and change my story!’
The appearance of God is what leads to excellence in life
- Connection to Divine generosity (1Kings 3:5)
Your dedication-driven giving connects you to resources beyond the scope of human experience
Everything you do with God, do it with a passion and affection, and you will see how God will link you to Divine resources
- The realisation of non-financial benefits (1Kings 3:5-12)
God will take you to a realm that money cannot buy
- The exceeding of life’s expectations (Eph. 3:20)
Where you are now is a shadow compared to where God wants to take you to.
Face God with passion, affection, dedication and devotion
Father, I give You the praise, the honour and the adoration. Thank You for Your Word to us tonight. Thank You for the privilege of knowing You and for the privilege of connection. Here am I Lord, use me, in Jesus’ Name.
Father, I surrender myself to You; I donate myself to You. I confirm the donation of my life to You and confirm my affection for You. Receive me lord, and have Your way in my life , in Jesus’ Name.
