Success God’s Way-Part 4

September 16, 2014

 

Think about what Jesus said in John 7:38“ He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

This is Christ in you flowing through you, blessing others. You are a channel of blessings to other people. This means that all who believe on Him will have their own needs met, and because their needs are met they live lives meeting the needs of other people with a resource that is inexhaustible…rivers of spiritual blessings that flow out of us to other people. My friend, this is a successful person biblically and in the eyes of God. You see even in the Old Testament, it was taught that those who expected the Messiah would not only be helped themselves, but would be channels of blessings to other people. Now the expression, “out of His heart will flow rivers of living water,” means out of the person’s inward parts, or inner life, would flow steams of help to other people.  Therefore, we can say, “Lord, make me a channel of blessings today!”
