Proclaiming the Praises

Giving Back.

I am sure every one of us can remember someone who helped us out at a crucial time in my life. For me, it was key men in my life that gave me an opportunity that I would not have had before unless they took extended to me their help.

The Gift

The first one that I could think of was my uncle Donald; he gave us a computer in our home when could not afford one. The computer changed my life. I learned how to program on computers I learned how to fix computers. Through that one act of kindness, it sent ripples of opportunity through my life. When we are blessed by someone else, we should what to give back in the same way that someone helped us. In this lesson, we talk about giving back the same way that God has first given to us.

When we are blessed by someone else, we should what to give back in the same way that someone helped us.

Read the following texts. What’s the one point that they all have in common? Deut. 4:6; 26:18, 19; Isa. 60:1-3; Zech. 8:23.

These texts point out that God has called us to a holy purpose. God has not only called us but he as given us a responsibility to live according to his commandments. These texts let us know that we must be careful to observe his commands. The texts state that the glory of the Lord has risen upon you, and because of this we called to share with others share our experience and knowledge of God and what He has done for the world through Christ.

Read 1 Peter 2:10. Why is this text so central to the whole mission and purpose of Christians?

This is an amazing passage because it demonstrated the amazing grace that God has bestowed upon us. We were estranged from God and him drew us near to him through the precious blood of Jesus Christ. When we have received the grace of Jesus Christ we are now called to share that blessing with others.

The Responsibility 

Christians are tasked with the responsibility of sharing with others the glorious salvation of which they have partaken.
Prayer: Lord I thank You for all hat You have done. Help us to remember to give back to others a portion of what you have given to us. Thank You in Jesus name amen.
