MAKING SPIRITUAL DEPOSITS
We should always have something to deposit into the 'Spiritual Bank' of others in the body of Christ!
I am referring to deposits that are of good substance, not the usual 'Religious One-Liners' like:
1. Trust in the Lord.
2. Pray about it.
3. You're a child of the king!
4. Speak life over it.
5. He can do the impossible!
6. Rebuke that devil!
We can all attest to the fact that the world and the environment we are forced to live in is against those who resemble Christ! We rub shoulders with it all day long, but when members of the body of Christ come together, there should be a big, big, difference!
As I rub shoulders with you and you with me, we should be making deposits into each other's spiritual bank. We should 'Drop a Dime' that is worth pocketing. We want to offer that which will not only encourage, but aid in spiritual growth. It can occur in a simple exchange of 10 minutes or less.
There are tons of things we can talk about and share about that are valuable and add a level of importance, but it is vital that we encourage, empower and help to elevate one another spiritually. This happens when we, ourselves, are sitting at the feet of the Lord daily, hearing from Him and communicating with Him. Something happens when we sit in His presence. We walk away with wisdom, strength and knowledge.
As you and I endure trials, challenges, set backs and triumphs, we are storing up faith, peace, patience, grace, strength, trust, and insights that God gives to those who wait on Him. These are jewels that are worth sharing when led by the Holy Spirit. This is the stuff that is life changing for those who hear from us.
So...what have you deposited into the spiritual bank of others lately?
