The importance of favouring the Kingdom of God II

May God bless you in a special way today! We have been talking about the fact that favour is not something that happens accidentally in a person’s life; it comes along with the understanding of certain God’s laws or principles. Yesterday we started talking about how every person who desires to experience the power of God’s favour in his life must learn to show favour towards God and His deeds.Today I want to continue on this topic.In his Epistle to Philippians, Apostle Paul wrote of his confidence of one particular thing:
«..being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ» (Philippians, 1:6).
Why was Paul so confident that the Lord will complete the good work He has begun in the lives of believers? If you pay careful attention to the context, you will see that his confidence is based upon the attitude of these people towards the work of God.In the beginning of his letter Paul said that these people had been preaching the Gospel from the very beginning of their walk with God.“I thank my God… for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now…” „ church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only” (Philippians, 1:1-6; 4:15-19).These people actively participated in the spreading of the Gospel; they gave themselves and their property to God. Paul prayed for them, and his prayers worked, because these people not only watched standing aside and with hands folded, – no, they played active role in the preaching. They showed favour towards the work of God’s Kingdom. Thus, Paul’s prayer for God to fulfil all their needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus was not hindered in any way.
«And my God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus» (Philippians, 4: 19).
Many believers today claim this promise for their lives, but unfortunately they are qualified for it. They are not qualified for a simple reason that they are not actively involved in the building of God’s Kingdom like Philippians did. Meeting of needs, answers to prayers, in other words, expressions of favour – all these things belong to those people that sow the seeds of favour into the Kingdom of God.Are you taking part in the building of God’s Kingdom through your local church? Are you sowing the seeds of favour into the lives of other people for the sake of winning them for God? Are you serving God with your property, talents, abilities, time? Answers to these questions determine your readiness to enjoy the favour of God.God bless you! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
