Multiplying Grace by Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Topic: Multiplying Grace
At new birth, everyone has a measure of grace just like every believer has a measure of faith at redemption.
Ephesians 2:8-9 – For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
At redemption, you were given a measure of grace and what you do with it determines what becomes of it. It is labour that facilitates the growth of grace.
1 Corinthians 15:10 – But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
Without labour, grace will be in vain. Labour releases the value of grace into a life.
Proverbs 20:4 – The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
Grace can be frustrated or received in vain. One of the ways to keep the grace of God alive and ever increasing is to engage in relevant and value-adding labour. Grace multiplies through different channels of laboring in prayer and in the word.
Colossian 4:12 -Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.
The altar of prayer is the throne of grace.
Hebrews 4:16 -Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
You therefore accumulate grace on the altar of prayers. Here, prayer is defined as labour and it enhances the multiplication of grace.
1 Timothy 5:17 -Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
When you labour in the word of God, grace multiplies too and you enter into rest. Labour is not just working on a construction site, laboring in prayer and the study of the word are fundamental spiritual principles that can enhance the multiplication of grace in your life.
2 Peter 1:2 -Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.
Receive grace for tireless productive labour. Every time you pray for the kingdom of God, you are investing into your destiny. Every time you invest in kingdom stewardship, you are investing into posterity. Don’t sit down and wait for people to serve you; get involved in rendering services to God and His kingdom and the grace of God upon your life will keep multiplying in Jesus name!
God bless you.
