A Ministry of Abundance

from the Everything New reading plan

Matthew 7:7-10, Matthew 25:31-46, Luke 12:32-34, 1 John 3:17-20, Hebrews 13:3, James 2:14-19

In light of the day’s reading, pause to reflect on the specific areas you long to see made new and how Jesus’s ministry calls us to join in that restoration. Let these shape your prayers today.

Jesus meets the needs of those who are hungry, sick, imprisoned, and far from the community. Jesus equips His followers with the love and strength to care for one another. So we obey Him by looking at our lives as an overflow of Christ’s goodness to share with others. We do not withhold compassion from those who are struggling now, working toward the promised end when God clothes His people in beauty and splendor and provides everything we need.

After you’ve read, spend some time in prayer, asking God to show you any areas He has equipped you to love and care for your community today. Comment/share with the community anything that stood out to you or encouraged you from the reading or your time in prayer.

    Wow. This passage is so good.
    As followers of Christ, we must help our brothers and sister in Christ and nurture them with God’s word and love.
    We must show compassion to the lost and broken.
    We must show care and nurture to those sick and struggling.
    We must strengthen those imprisoned and lost.
    The world is so full of judgment but we have no right to judge. For we are all broken saved by Jesus sacrifice on the cross for all of our sins.
    We are just trying to make it through this world like everyone else. We must use our equipment of faith and love to help the helpless.

    As a follower of Jesus, I am deeply moved by His compassionate response to those in need – the hungry, sick, imprisoned, and marginalized. He not only meets their needs but also equips us, His followers, with the love and strength to care for one another.

    I recognize that my life is meant to reflect the overflow of Christ’s goodness, which I am called to share with others. I understand that obedience to Him means extending compassion without reservation to those who are struggling now.

    I am committed to working toward the promised end when God clothes His people in beauty and splendor, providing everything we need. In doing so, I aim to embody the love and kindness of Christ and fulfill His commandments with humility and grace.

    I love this thought, of living our lives as the overflow of God’s goodness. No scarcity, only abundance. There is plenty of love to go around.
