And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

Luke 19:8

Jesus Christ gave His Church — this body of spiritually transformed believers — a responsibility to carry out. The other one we shall look at is, every genuine return has an element of surrendering not only our lives but also resources, time, energy etc.

When Zacchaeus returned from his far country, he pledged to give back to all those he might have frauded fourfold of their stolen goods. Love, the essential elements of the heart, is tested on the sacrificial table of giving. Naomi later gave out Ruth, the prodigal son also gave out his service to the father.

Beloved, giving unto the Lord is the greatest demonstration of one’s faith in the Lord. Of a truth, no individual can pay for the access Christ has granted us back to the Father yet, our genuine giving is a demonstration that we are eternally grateful for Salvation.
