“Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

– Luke 6:38

Yesterday, we talked about how acting bigger gives us an opportunity to see God’s power at work in our lives. Today, I want to discuss a fifth and final thing we can do in order to fully activate our authority in the Kingdom of God — give bigger!

We all know John 3:16, right? “For God so loved the world that He gave…” However, we typically don’t stop at gave; instead, we keep reading, so it’s easy to miss the essence of the Gospel. You see, the core of the message of grace is that Jesus was given to us by the Father. We didn’t have to pay for our salvation, nor did we need to earn it. God is a giver! Because so much was given to us when Jesus died on the cross to redeem our lives, we can give big back to Him. Now when I say to give big, I’m not talking about donations, I’m talking about giving of ourselves.

To give bigger means to give more of who you are. Your Heavenly Father doesn’t want just 25% or 50% of your life, He wants it all. He wants your whole heart, so pour yourself completely into whatever you are doing. The cross is the greatest symbol of generosity ever given, so as you walk in the fullness of your redemption, you can give a thousand percent of yourself to the work Jesus has called you to. When you give it all, you will see your sacrifice bless others in the same way God has blessed you! Isn’t that awesome news? 

Friend, take up your cross and follow Jesus. Go the extra mile and do whatever you need to to stay on the narrow road. Remember, even when it’s hard, you’re doing better than you think you are — keep going. Do brigger, pray bigger and believe and operate in Spiritual power! Take authority over your fear, pray for those who are suffering, and watch as the Lord works miracles in and through you; I promise, you will be amazed!


Jesus, I choose to give it all to you today. Take what I have and show your glory in and through my life.

  1. Well Pastor Bobby,
    that really made me think this morning! They only thing I have a hard time sacrificing is my time with God. It sets the pace for my whole day!! There isn’t anything here I wouldn’t give to someone in need. Even in the year and a half I spent homeless. I still helped people out. Gave sat talked and prayed with them. I felt blessed. Please pray for my friend Crystal LaPolla, She is in hospice and only 30 something. If it is her time she will leave behind an 8yr old son and a three year old daughter and a very loving husband. This is truly breaking my heart.
