Being a Chanel of Blessing: Matthew 10:40-42
““40) He who receives you receives Me, and he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me. 41) He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42) And whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, truly I say to you, he shall not lose his reward.”” Matthew‬ ‭10‬:‭40‬-‭42‬ ‭
Jesus now changes His tone on the theme of the fate of His Disciples. Though there will be hardships in this world, there will also be blessings and Divine provision for the consecrated followers of Jesus.
He will supernaturally move people to care for His own. Sometimes the promptings are so strong they cannot be ignored. We have witnessed God work in many extraordinary ways over the years.
But this text includes a unique promise. God will reward those who become the supply chain for His faithful workers. Jesus says in these verses that it is just as if they are ministering directly to Him. What we do for His own we are doing for Him!
Over the years we’ve been privileged to be on both sides of these principles. We’ve both been the recipient of God’s provisions and we’ve been the supply. Often we become the conduit in between. Many times God merely wants us to pass on blessings to others with urgent needs.
This involves listening to the Holy Spirit and a very non-Western view of stewardship. It includes debt free living, frugal spending and viewing all money as belonging to the King.
This is also when the miracles start happening. When God finds trustworthy and frugal people and organizations to help deliver the supply to the needs, He opens the storehouse in heaven.
