DAY THIRTY FIVE
April 7th, 2018
READ | 2 CORINTHIANS 9:6-15
The Apostle Paul seeks to teach the Corinthian church the power of gospel-driven generosity. When we give to God’s kingdom, we receive God’s kingdom. Now, we should never give out of guilt or human pressure, but instead out of joy and obedience to the Holy Spirit. When we give generously, God uses our generosity to change the world, and gives us hope and joy.
I am 100% convinced God has healed my family from illness; prospered and protected our income and business efforts; given us favor with influential people who’ve opened impossible doors and dazzled us with gifts we didn’t even know to ask for, because we joyfully give to His Church. Joy is hardwired into giving: I can’t count how many times I’ve had tears in my eyes and a smile on my face because I got to see how my giving helped someone believe and follow Jesus or take their next step with Him.
There’s no doubt we will experience this same hope and joy when we faithfully give towards Building Brentwood. I can’t wait to hear and share the stories that flow from our church over the next season. We will be blown away at the miracles and breakthroughs, because God wants to pour them out on us when we give.
What does it look like for you to trust God in Building Brentwood?
