Outrageous Generosity

Series: New Thru 30
Message: Outrageous Generosity
2 Corinthians 8:1-9

As Paul writes his second letter we have to the church in Corinth he references a request he made in an earlier letter regarding a collection for the church in Jerusalem.  Trying to encourage the church who points to the outrageous generosity of the Macedonian churches who gave not out of great wealth but out of great poverty.  So much so that these churches gave far beyond what he felt they should, but the gifts came from an understanding of what Christ has done.  So Paul encourages these church excel in the gift of giving.  As followers of Jesus we should excel at giving, we should excel at generosity, not to put to how great we are, but to point to how great God’s grace has been in our life.
