For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:29. The scripture above tells us that God gave His only begotten Son to be crucified so that He could become the firstborn of many brethren. It is because God gave Christians everywhere you go in the world today.
Furthermore, Jesus stated this key to multiplication plainly in our memory verse today where He said unless a seed falls to the ground and dies, it will not bring forth much fruit. If you really want to multiply, you must be willing to sacrifice the most precious thing that you already have. Proverbs 11:24 says when you withhold more than is necessary, you will tend to poverty, but when you scatter, you increase. Increase is good, but multiplicaton is better. When you give, you increase, but when you sacrifice, you multiply.
In Genesis 22:1-18, When God asked Abraham to surrender his only son and he was willing to do so, God said, ‘In blessing I will bless you.’ What Abraham did was significant, but what Isaac did was also trememdously significant. Isaac had only one life, yet did not struggle with Abraham. I believe it wouldn’t have been very difficult for him to escape if he wanted to, but he consented to being bound and placed on the altar like an animal.
God therefore said He would bless Abraham who gave, but multiply Isaac who sacrificed, I have sowed my personal cars for the sake of the gospel, and had to resort in public transport to get around. God responded to these sacrifices by blessing me with so many car gifts that at a point, had to announce that people should stop giving me cars. Today, I have travel in a Private jet He provided for me. Beloved, sacrificial giving is the key to divine multiplication.

Before God multiplies you, He wants to be sure that you love Him above everything you have.
