Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whosesoever sins ye retain, they are retained
In the verses above you’d notice that the Lord Jesus after He had breathed on His disciples to receive the Holy Spirit immediately said to them, “Whosesoever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.” Therefore, as a believer, you’ve become a dispenser of His goodness: His mercy, grace, and love. Your ministry, hence responsibility is to manifest His will, and reveal His character and purpose in the earth.
Remember, you’re an associate of the God-kind, in partnership with Him, and now He’s given you the authority to forgive sins. In Mark 2:10, Jesus told the Jews that He, the Son of man, had power on earth to forgive sins. He’s given us the same authority that He had to dispense good things.
We can pronounce healing and other blessings on and for others, in the Name of Jesus, the same way we pronounce forgiveness. He has sent us as bearers of His Gospel, to unveil the Father’s heart of love and compassion to the nations of the world; such a high calling!
I thank you for making me the dispenser of your goodness to my world. I am the extension, and manifestation of your grace, love and compassion to all those I come in contact with today, having made me an able minister of the Gospel, not of the letter, but of the Spirit, that gives life,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
