Hebrews 11:4 (KJV) By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
Blessing, what are you going to do with the huge profit you made from that business? Peace, I am going to give it to God, I believe that’s what the Holy Spirit is instructing me to do. What are you going to do with yours? Blessing asked Peace. I’m going to invest it in that business we discussed.
What Blessing and Peace did with their money, they did by faith; Blessing gave her huge profit to God and Peace invested hers in a business. Peace’s faith yielded an earthly reward while Blessing’s will yield an eternal reward.
From today’s text you will see that it is that which is offered, sacrificed, or given to God that yields eternal reward. Abel for instance, still speaks today although dead because of the gifts he offered to God (see Hebrews 11:4).
It is true that God wants to supply all your needs and you will receive these supplies by faith but you also must learn how to give back to God using the same faith. A careful study of Hebrews 11 reveals that It is what you do for or give to God that will be remembered eternally.
If you desire to store up treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:19), you must learn how to give, serve, and sacrifice by faith. The greatest value of faith is locked up in its ability to cause you to give.
Go into today knowing that living by faith entails knowing how to receive from and give to God by faith.
Prayer: Thank the Lord for all you’ve been able to receive by faith and ask Him for the grace to give by faith.
