I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward. Mark 9:41 (NIV)

The benefits of belonging to Christ and living in God’s kingdom are many. God’s blessings are bountiful and it is a great privilege to be counted as one of his own. But it is not a thing to hoard away as a private treasure. It is not a thing we are meant to hide for fear of it being taken away. No one can take it from us and we only gain more by giving more.

So, walk tall, showing pride to bear Christ’s name and know that anyone who blesses you because of that name is also blessed. It doesn’t diminish your own blessings, but instead increases it. It’s a wonderful cascade of blessings. A thing to be shared. And it’s all because of the love of God.

What a great thing to share, the name of Christ. Oh that so many would come to know Him, who is the king of all kings!

I have heard this concept three times this week....God is definitely trying to give me the message. He is teaching me the more I give, the more He blesses my life, so I can give more. :)

Thanks for sharing,

God's love is to be shared
and only multiples over and
over back to us. This is the
way He meant for it to be
and I love it. Great post!
