“We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints— and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us.” (2 Corinthians 8:1-5, English Standard Version)
Sermon for July 1, 2018
God has gifted you with abundant blessings, and these blessings are meant to be used to His glory – to invest in your relationship with God and with others. Love God. Love neighbor. Serve with joy in Jesus’ name. We are blessed to share our blessings with others in the name of the One who gave His life for us, Jesus Christ our Lord.
