My SMS to God: I want to invest wisely! Help me! (Luke 12:33-34; Matt. 6:19-21)

What can we do with our life?

We can waste it.

We can spend it.

We can invest it.

We do not want to waste our life on wild partying, on drugs or alcohol. We do not want to waste it on being lazy, procrastinating, and throwing away opportunities.

We do not want just to spend our life. We do not want to spend it trying to be the best and reach the top of whatever it is. We do not want to spend it on doing whatever it takes to reach our goals and running here and there. We do not want to spend it on being self-focused and looking out for only number one.


We do want to invest our life. We want to give back out of the things we have been blessed with. We want to use our time and talents to make a difference in the lives of others and we want to invest in them by being their true friends and taking the Gospel to them! (Gal. 5:13) The Apostle Paul said this: ‘You have been blessed so much, you have freedom because of what Jesus Christ did on the cross, you are free, but do not get this freedom confused for anytime God grants us a blessing, including freedom from sin, we are to use these blessings to serve others out of love.’ When God blesses us, it is not for our own extravagance, but it is for the chance to make an investment in the life of others. One of the blessings we have been blessed with is the Good News about the Lord Jesus Christ.


How can we invest our lives?


1. Investing through words (Heb. 3:13; Prov. 25:11).
Encouraging each other can have an effect on keeping each other from sinning! Children are literally dying for love today, and our words can pay huge dividends when we invest them with love into their lives.

2. Investing through actions (1 Peter 2:12; Matt. 5:16).
While words are powerful, actions do speak louder than words, as we all know. As Christians we are under the microscope, people are going to watch the things that we do closely to see if we are walking the walk, and not just talking the talk.

3. Investing through prayer (James 5:15).
Prayer really does work. When we pray for others, we are asking for a Divine investment to be made in their lives. Before we ever evangelize people, we should make investments of prayer for them. There is nothing that can make us love someone more than a prayer for them, and nothing that can influence someone more than a heart felt prayer for God to come and work in their life.

God has called us to invest in the lives of others with words, actions and prayer. Prayer: Dear God, help me to invest wisely in others: in words, actions and prayer!

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
