How to increase your blessings in the life to come

July 18, 2013

“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

Luke 6:38

Years ago, I preached in a week-long revival down in South Florida. The ministry that invited me had a very limited budget, so every night we’d pass an offering plate to help keep the lights on for the next night. We went day-to-day not knowing if we were going to be able to open the building tomorrow!

Well, one night as we were shutting things down, a woman came to me and said, “Pastor, I’ve always wanted to attend a revival where there was no offering taken. I’m not against it, but I want it to just be about the people who don’t know Jesus.” And right then and there, she wrote a check that covered the expenses for the rest of the week. We didn’t have to take another offering!

That revival had a tremendous impact on that little town, and I have no doubt it was due, in part, to that woman’s generosity. But what was more important than that was the reason she gave – not to get anything in return, but simply so that more people would hear the Gospel.

I’ve never seen that woman again, but I have no doubt her reward in heaven is going to be great for that simple act of faith. So give generously, expecting nothing in return. You may not be rewarded in this life, but you’ll be blessed beyond compare in the life to come!

INCREASE YOUR BLESSINGS IN THE LIFE TO COME BY GIVING GENEROUSLY IN THIS LIFE AND EXPECTING NOTHING IN RETURN!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013


Dear Friend,

While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.

That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.

This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”

The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.

Thank you!
