Loving the Lord by loving His agents

Rev Enoch Thompson | MARCH 31, 2023 | Matthew 10:40-42

KEY VERSE:

Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man's reward. Matthew 10:41 (NIV)


MESSAGE:

Ambassadors of kingdoms and nations represent their kings and national leaders, and whatever is done to them is seen as something done to their sending powers. In the concluding sections of this extensive teaching on the persecution that the Apostles, and by extension all believers will face because of their identification with and commitment to Christ, the Lord gives an assuring principle that should encourage all believers in our forward march: “Anyone who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and anyone who receives a righteous man because he is a righteous man will receive a righteous man's reward.” Matthew 10:41 (NIV). This assurance is that when we reach out in the Name of the Lord Jesus, we have His companionship and His blessings. People who do good to us, because we are His children, His agents serving His purpose, will receive the blessing of our God and King.


Our reception of Christ is understood as we are receiving the Father who sent Him. It means receiving everything that the infinite all-powerful loving heavenly Father is. It means having God come into residence in our hearts with all His attendant advantages, blessings on earth and life forevermore!

When we welcome people based on their identification with Christ, and not on class, ethnic, financial standing or other such superficial bases, we court the blessings of God.


FEET AND HANDS FOR THE MESSAGE:

Step out into the world knowing that you have the backing of Heaven. Touch people with the love and power of your Heavenly Father. How do you receive and treat Pastors, missionaries and other agents of the Kingdom who come your way?


PRAYER:

Dear Father in Heaven, I am grateful that you assure me of your presence with me For your dear Name’s sake, Amen.


THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING.

SHOWERS! BLESSINGS!!
