DO YOU “LAMBANO?”
(Learn The Law Of Receiving)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Romans 5:17 “To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.”
◀ LET’S TALK
“Receive!” was the word Paula kept hearing from her leader in church. “What does he mean? There was nothing he held as he said it.” Most Christians wonder the same way as Paula. Let’s look at that word, “receive.” In the realms of the Spirit, there’re different kinds of laws; we have the law of contact, the law of faith, and then we have the law of receiving. Our opening verse says, “For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness….” The word “receive” here is the Greek “lambano.” It’s not the same as being stationary somewhere and expecting what you want to just land in your hand; no. That word is a carefully picked word. It’s different from the English connotation of the word “receive.”
“Lambano” is an action word; it means “to take,” “to catch” and make personal to you. It means to get a hold of something and make it yours. We minister to people sometimes and we say, “Take it”; that’s what it is. It’s the keyword of the Spirit for “receive.” The above verse says, “They which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” It’s saying those who get a hold of, catch, or “lambano” abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness are the ones that’ll reign in life. This means you’re looking out for it to get a hold of it; you’re going for it, for the purpose of using it.
So, you see, it’s not just about God giving you something; He’s already given you everything (1 Corinthians 3:21). You’re the one to receive through your persistent and audacious faithproclamations! All things have been made available for you to enjoy, so go ahead and take a hold of your abundant life in Christ!

1 Corinthians 2:12-13; Matthew 7:7
I’ve got a supernatural heritage in Christ, possessions of great and inestimable value! Therefore, I declare that I walk in superabundance today, for God has prepared great and unquantifiable blessings for me to take care of all my needs! All that belong to me are being unveiled by the revelation of God’s Word, and as I see, I possess! Hallelujah!
