      THE MORE YOU GIVE...
      "And Jesus said unto them, 'Come ye after Me, and I will make you to become
      fishers of men.' And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed Him."
      Mark 1:17-18

      Simon and Andrew were casting a net into the sea; they were fishing. Jesus
      called for them to come and follow Him. The Bible says that they immediately let
      go of what they had; they let go of what they were doing. They immediately let
      go of what was familiar and important to them. They were fishermen, but their
      identities immediately changed from being fishermen, to being followers of
      Christ.

      Have you really given yourself to Christ? Have you really surrendered your life
      to God? How much of God do you want in your life? Do you want all of Him? Do you
      desire all of His promises; all of His provision; all of His blessings; all of
      His protection; all of His forgiveness; all of His attention and all of His
      love? Do you really? The more you give; the more you get!

      If you want more of Him, then you have to give more of yourself. If you want all
      that He has to offer; if you want to experience His fullness, then you have to
      give all; you have to surrender (relinquish, give up, hand over) your life,
      totally and completely. The opposite of surrendering is retaining (holding on
      to; hanging on to). To hold on to; to hang on to something or someone, could
      prevent you from grabbing hold on to more of Him. Is it worth it? The more you
      give, the more you get!  

      Do you want more? You have to be like Simon and Andrew...Give up your net; your
      safety net; your false security; your addiction; your habit...Give up your dreams,
      for His purpose; give up your desires, for His will; give up your old way of
      thinking, for a new way of believing. Deny yourself, so you can gain your new
      identity.  

      Let go! Give it up! Come on...you've wanted to experience Him more, but it's your
      lack of total surrender that is preventing you from realizing His anointing
      power; His awesome abilities; His supernatural intervention; His unfailing love
      and His unchanging hand in your life. What do you want; a part-time
      relationship, with limited change and restricted blessings...Do you want to hear
      Him, only sometimes, receiving a little of what He has, experiencing a small
      amount of His power in your life? Or do you want it all???
      If you want it all; give your all....everything in this life is temporary and
      subject to change . Let it go, for something eternal and unchangeable.

      The more you give, the more you get!!
