Faith Building Verses-Ephesians 3:20 and 21

January 10th, 2022 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Faith-Building Verses are Ephesians 3:20 and 21.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

God’s power is at work in the world today through hearts that believe the Gospel. Jesus was able to feed at least 5,000 people with five loaves and two fish that were offered to him. His power is not just in the physical realm, but also the spiritual realm. All over the world, this gospel is bearing fruit. We might not know the impact of our skills and resources on the kingdom of God. But as we commit what we have to Jesus, we can count on Him to multiply our offerings with His blessing.

These faith-building verses inspire us to stay connected to Jesus and see His power work beyond imagination in the Year of Relationship.

Focus On God-Multiplying Impact

July 14th, 2017 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Trust, today’s Focus on God examines His ability to multiply our offerings for Kingdom impact.

According to John chapter 6, at least five thousand people formed a great crowd to gather around Jesus. But there was a shortage of food, and Jesus wanted to feed them. But where would the food come from?

One of Jesus’ disciples, Andrew pointed out, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” With Jesus’ touch, the answer became “far enough to satisfy every person in the crowd.”

This true story shows what can happen when we offer Jesus what little we have, (whether a tithe or our spiritual gift). He can multiply something we consider ordinary or insignificant and touch many lives with it. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that He is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

God’s ability to multiply our offerings is a reason to trust in God for today and forever.
