Bible Challenge – 2 Corinthians 9

February 17, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. ‘For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.'” v.7

Paul says this two times within these two chapters.  It must be important for us to understand and to begin to apply as we live out the Gospel advancing the Kingdom of God.  So, instead of writing something new, let’s think through this again today because giving is such an important part of a Christ Followers life.

Giving is a testimony to the faith of a believer.  How and where you spend your money reveals where your heart is. It’s often said, “Show me you check book and I will tell you where your heart is.” When we give, we are giving back to God for the advancement of His Kingdom on this earth.  It allows the church to accomplish the task of reaching people for Christ, Baptizing new believers, Discipling Committed Christ Followers, and Equipping the Church to lead.  By giving, we help the church extend its ministry and influence in culture.

Today, are you a giver? How can you begin to give from what you have and/or increase your giving according to what you have?
