The Importance of Investing Day 7: Sunday Selah
“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.” (Malachi 3:10, ESV)
There is such beauty in this Scripture, friends—let’s not miss it.
The long and short of it is this: if we give our everything to God, will He not freely pour down a sufficient blessing on us? He won’t almost meet our needs, but rather He will bless us until there is no need left. This was best demonstrated in what we remember as we worship Christ this Lord’s Day—the giving of God’s Son to be a full and perfect provision to forever make us right before God.
Maybe you hold back from going all in for Christ. We’ve all been there and can easily relate. Yet you’re missing the blessings that come from serving Him fully. He longs to bless us, but first—first, He asks for our whole hearts.
There is no hint at prosperity gospel here. God doesn’t owe us good things when we serve Him, but He does promise to bless us when we give Him our whole hearts. That may be seen in different ways here on earth, but it most certainly will come to pass when we reach our heavenly home. The truth is that we can never over-invest when it comes to our walk with Christ, yet oftentimes we are guilty of under-investing in spiritual things.
As we think today of Christ’s great sacrifice for us, may our hearts be warmed by God’s gift of His Son, and may we see the privilege it is to serve Him, holding nothing back. Is He worthy of every part of us? Oh, how worthy He truly is! May this prompt us to worship Him to the highest capacity humanly possible.
