Month Theme: Reaping in the Jubilee
Topic: Share Your Blessings
Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 7:1-11; Luke 4:16-21
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Famine is widespread around the world. Wars have displaced many people and rendered them malnourished. The Church must be the answer to the times we live in. The four lepers at the gate of Samaria took a risk, and God used them to bring an end to the famine on the land (2 Kings 7:3-7). The Syrian army heard strange noises when the lepers approached their camp and fled, leaving behind their provisions and animals. What they heard was like the sound of a Jubilee trumpet announcing the freedom of God’s people.
After the lepers had experienced God’s favour, they said it was not good for them to keep the good news to themselves. It was not righteous for them to be blessed alone. They told one another, “We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household” (2 Kings 7:9). They rushed to share their blessings with the entire city.
The Jubilee is a time for people to experience the mercies of God. We must avail ourselves to God to use us to bless others. Neither lack nor greed should accompany us into the Jubilee. In the Jubilee, God blesses us so that we can bless others. This is the Jubilee. We have enough to share with others.
Prayer: Ask God to use you as a solution to poverty around you.
