Multiplication For Impact by Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Topic: Multiplication For Impact
Matthew 5:13-14 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
You are the salt of the earth and the light of the world, meaning you are to be a person of impact is to be a trailblazer, a pacesetter, a pathfinder, a light bearer for others to see, a problem solver. To be a person of impact is to be a blessing to others with God-given resources, gift, talent and grace. Until you are a positive contributor to the course of humanity, you are merely existing and not living. Life has no meaning without contribution. Your usefulness to God and humanity is determined by the way you impact your world. Jesus’ impact to the world is unparalleled.

Acts 13:36 For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption.
David impacted his generation and is still being celebrated in Israel as their greatest king that ever lived. Living without impact is living without meaning because everyone was created and empowered for impact.
Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
God created man and blessed man. The primary purpose of being blessed is to bless others. That is to impact others with the blessing of God in us.
God is called ‘omnipotent’. ‘Omni’ means multi-dimensional and ‘potent’ is where potential is derived. When God created you, He deposited all His potentials in you, you were made in His image; exactly as God is. What is in you is not less than what is in another person. There is nobody that is not gifted. God gave everyone potentials and the impact you make depends on how you utilize your potentials.
God created you to be a blessing which means that the primary purpose of being blessed is for you to impact the world with the blessing He has given to you. This is the purpose of multiplication. If you are not impacting your world, you will be frustrating the purpose of your existence. Every time you keep what God gave to you without multiplying it, God gets angry. There is something in you waiting for expression. To impact the world with your potential, you need to engage the force of multiplication.
Multiplication is an act of reproduction. It means to increase in number. God wants us to keep reproducing the effects of our talent so as to fill the entire world with it to His own glory. God blessed man for impact and for you to successfully impact your world, you must go beyond being fruitful into multiplying the results of your fruits. God did not just say, be fruitful, He then went on to say be fruitful and multiply.
Genesis 1:28a And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply.
God wants you to keep reproducing with the talents He has placed in you to fill the earth with His own glory. You must therefore go beyond your current level of success to the level God wants you to be. It is not enough to be fruitful, you must multiply. Many are fruitful but have problems knowing how to multiply the fruits.
Multiplication is the bridge between fruitfulness and impact. When you throw a stone into a river it produces a current of waves, similarly when you apply force into your life, you create waves of multiplication.
Zechariah 9:10 And his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from river even to the ends of the earth.
God wants your dominion to be spread from one nation to the other. Therefore, refuse to be a local champion. Without multiplication, impact will be limited. Every living thing, including human beings, we’re created with the ability to multiply. Until you keep multiplying your God-given ability, you cannot fill the world with it.
Isaiah 11:9b For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
Just as God desires that the earth should be filled with knowledge, so does He desire that you should fill the world with the blessing you received at creation.
Without multiplication, impact will be limited.
God bless you
