Big white bundle
1 Corinthians 3:12,13” Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire…”
It was my last day after three days of ministry in that city, I was preaching in the morning service in a particular church after which I was going straight to the station. It was time for offering and all I had in my handbag was a five hundred rupee note, I was swiftly looking for any other cash but that was all I had, nothing else. I had to take a cab to the railway station so I needed that money; however, I picked up that five hundred rupee note from my bag and put it in the offering bag. I lifted my hands (now that I was empty, I could lift up my hands higher ) and worshipped the Lord and got ready to preach. It was a simple church in one of the southern districts of Tamil Nadu, as I finished praying for the congregation, the pastor came to see me and put a ‘big white bundle’ into my hands; it was too heavy and I was unable to carry it, he said, ‘ we decided to give the entire offering collection that we received today to you.’ My five hundred rupee note was also inside it!
Give all you have to God, not tomorrow but today! Give, and it will be given to you. “A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38) Read 1 Corinthians 3 given above, before I delve into the message, it’s just three lines, don’t skip it, you will miss the gold. Are you listening? We have time to sit for 3 hours movie and half hour TV drama, but seldom sit to read His Word, well, the scripture says, ‘at the end of our life, God would filter all our works, our earnings, our efforts, our running around, our busy agendas, all the thousand educational degrees and what not, and only the things pertaining to godliness would be retained. You can have thousand things in your upper shelf gathering dust in your house, properties and everything but what you have done and given for God is what remains in the end, everything else is just wood, hay and straw!
