Is it possible to get 30, 60, even 100-fold returns? This depends on how you measure your returns of natural gains, spiritual gains or both. In God’s economy HE is always measuring our faithfulness. In man’s economy we measure by yield and return. God is infinite, abundant and works on a supernatural exponential level. Man is finite.
How is your investment portfolio performing? Are you getting supernatural returns of 30, 60 and 100-fold? Are you settling for low-risk, low-return investments? Are you seeking high-risk, high potential return?
When the twelve spies reported back to the Israelites what they found in the Promised Land: the people are numerous, the land is full of giants, and the cities are large and fortified – they were afraid.
In the parable of the talents the master went away and left his property with his servants until his return. He gave his property to the servants based upon their abilities. One servant buried his talent. When the master came back, the servant told his master he was afraid and hid his talent.
Jesus told us if we are to be HIS disciples we must give up everything and follow HIM. We must take up our cross and follow HIM.
When we live in comfort and safety, it is hard to follow Christ. Are you willing to give up your comfort and security to follow Christ into the Promised Land which is full of giants and people who disagree with your faith? Are you willing to use your skills, abilities and gifts to put them at trade through work to serve others and further the Kingdom of God? When the master comes back HE says to you, “well done good and faithful servant. You have been faithful with little, I will put you in charge of more.” Your reward for faithfulness in the Kingdom of God is greater responsibility, not more money.
God is looking for those who are willing to invest in high-risk, high-return living. Joshua and Caleb believed God and led the next generation of Israelites into the Promised Land. Their parents, who had witnessed all the miracles of coming out of Egypt, died in the desert because of their lack of faith. They never entered into the Promised Land.
In the parable of the talents two servants took risk and doubled the master’s resources.
As a disciple of Christ you cannot stay where you are and follow God. God is at work and HE wants you to join HIM. He wants you to leave behind your past thinking, fear and doubt and join HIM in the supernatural growth of building the Kingdom of God.
Put into practice today the power of God’s supernatural love.
