DEVO 11.03.22


"Now you should finish what you started..." (2 Corinthians 8:11 NLT)


- Its easy to let discouragement and distractions pull you away from what you originally set out to do.

- The Corinthian church was a church that had money.

- They had set out to give a financial gift to the church in Jerusalem the previous year.

- The Apostle Paul is reminding them to fulfill the commitment that they had made.

- He is also reminding them of the eagerness they had in the beginning.

- Verse 11 says, "Let the eagerness you showed in the beginning be matched now by your giving. Give in proportion to what you have."

- Is there an area in your life where God clearly showed you what to do?

- Maybe, like the church in Corinth, it was to financially give...

- Or maybe it was a spiritual commitment to grow in His Word or in your prayer life...

- Maybe it was an act of kindness

- Maybe it was a burden He place on your heart

- Or Maybe it was a step of faith that is way out of your comfort zone...

- Whatever it is ...Remember to finish what you started.

- Remember the joy and enthusiasm that you had in the beginning!

- Remember the burden that God put on your heart

- Today, "I remind you to keep ablaze the gift of God that is in you..."

- God has given you gifts and placed a calling on your life - if you don't use them, then you are neglecting them.

- So, keep it ablaze! stir it up! Fan it in Flame!

- Get that enthusiasm back!

- Get that Passion and zeal back...

- Most importantly get your love back!

- Phil. 1:6 says, "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

- Just like Christ has not finished the work He started in you, you need to work with Him and imitate Him.

- God has so much that He wants to accomplish in and through you!

- Your best days are not behind you...they are ahead of you!

- Get Re-Filled and Re-Focused and set out to finish what you have started.

- Have a great Thursday!
