*Giving is the natural gateway to changing levels in prosperity
- IF YOU FAKE YOUR LOVE FOR GOD TODAY, IT WILL SHOW TOMORROW
Every true lover of God is ordained to live above every situation and circumstances (Romans 8:28)
WHAT IS LOVE IN BIBLICAL CONTEXT?
1.Giving your heart to God – Proverbs 23:26
2.It is loving souls – John 3:16, John 21:15-17
Without a passion for God, there is no prove that you love God
3.A God first lifestyle where God becomes the centre of your life– Matthew 6:33, Matthew 19:27-29, Mark 10:28-30, Luke 18:28-30
That is your access to the hundredfold realm. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God.
4.Placing God above all else including one’ self – Luke 14:26-27. Having God as number 1 at all times under all circumstances. Every successful disciple will end up to become an Apostle: a pace setter, a trail blazer, a pathfinder
5.Identifying with Jesus openly, publicly and unashamedly, no matter where – Mark 8:38, Romans 8:28
What is God saying, we know that all things will continue to work together for good, to them that love God according to these biblical definitions, love God according to the terms of scriptures that we have just gone through: all things.
-Somebody is here to experience a turnaround.
6.It is denying oneself for Christ’s sake – Luke 9:23-25
Love is not a gift, it is a choice (John 21:15-17). No one ever loves God at a loss, every true lover ends up the envy of his world.
David: He made a national hero out of a teenager (1 Samuel 13:14)
Cleave to Him, like marital love – Matthew 19:5
BIBLICAL PROOFS OF OUR LOVE FOR GOD
- Obeying Him will be a delight – 1 John 5:3
- Love for His Word – Psalm 119:97-11
- Love for His house – Psalm 112:1-6
- Love for others – 1 John 4:21, Galatians 6:10

Giving is the covenant platform to change levels in prosperity
There must be a demonstration of your love for God by loving your fellow men.
Love has unlimited capacity for growth – Ephesians 3:18-19
Love empowered me to be committed to ever growing love for you, until you are filled, I am filled with all the fullness of God, putting you and me absolutely in command of the affairs of life.
Prayer: Lord, empower my love for You for ever-growing dimension
