*TOPIC: KINGDOM INCREASE (7)*
*TEXT*: “And he gave orders for the people to be seated on the grass; and he took the five cakes of bread and the two fishes and, looking up to heaven, he said words of blessing, and made division of the food, and gave it to the disciples, and the disciples gave it to the people”Matt 4:19
Principles of kingdom increase;
*Delegate responsibilities and share power*:
What if Jesus decided to distribute the bread directly to the multitude?it will amount to failure.You must delegate duties to the trained ones.When you go for evangelism ,have the focus of making disciples that God can commit grace into his hand to distribute to the world not a mere follower seeking for bread everyday.Raise leaders from the followers and that is the way there can be increase. Give substance to people close to you so that they can spread the same grace you possessed. Transfer your skill to loyal apprentice that can carry on and thereby increase the business.The key here is loyalty.The disciples are loyal to the Lord by all means.They will not go when things get tough. They are committed to the vision at all cost.The greatest asset on the earth is loyal partners either in kingdom labour,at home or in secular business.You must take time to build true loyal partners in your team.Jesus did,that is why the kingdom increase in his life and through his life.Some people’s spouse are not even loyal to them,not the family course or the corporate kingdom vision.Self has killed many homes and kingdom increase that ought to follow correct alignment on the earth.If you give the five loaves and two fishes in your to unloyal,selfish,greedy people,kingdom vision in your hand will collapse.They will eat the fish,run away and mock you.God is the judge but you would have fail as a manager of grace.Jesus tested for loyalty before commitments. That is why the disciples must leave all to follow him(Matthew 4:19).That is one major test of loyalty.What have you sacrifice for the course?what more can you sacrifice ?Where your treasure is ,your heart will be.Either your spouse,your ministry partner etc must be taken through loyalty test.Don’t force people to be part of your life and you must be loyal too.Define where God want you to be and submit there.Has God given you a direct mandate,be loyal then you can test the loyalty of others to the course.
Father,I receive the grace to be loyal to the kingdom course at all cost in the name of Jesus.
