Theme: The Great Shepherd

Topic: My Cup Runneth Over

Scripture Reading:
Luke 4:18-19; Psalm 23:1-6; John 6:10-13

Main Text:
Psalms 23:5
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

The good Shepherd ensures that there is more than enough wine at the  banquet – cups overflow. Jesus Christ said He  came  to give  us  abundant life (John 10:10). He  does not  give  life and blessing sparingly.  Abundant life is life,  which is spiritually and eternally satisfying. This kind of life  has the forgiveness of sins and the fullness of the Holy Ghost. It does not end on earth but runs over into eternity.

The wine of the  Holy Ghost in the  form of the  infilling of the  Spirit and the  manifestation of the  gifts of the Holy Ghost must overflow in the  Church. In terms of finances  and  physical  blessings,  a  pastor  should  discard the scarcity mentality.  Jesus Christ multiplied bread and fed  thousands of people  with twelve  basketsful of crumbs left over.

God is able  to do “exceeding abundantly” above  what we  ask for or think. It is not  carnal for a pastor  to teach his or her flock to  walk in  prosperity and  divine  health. Some preachers have exalted money to the level of God and have troubled the Body of Christ with their greed. We should not allow their  waywardness to take us to another  extreme by denouncing every kind  of blessing. Abundance  enables us to reach the world with God’s goodness and mercy. 

Prayer:
1. Pray that in everything you do, you’ll not run at a loss but will profit abundantly.
2. Pray also that your life will be spiritually and eternally satisfying.
