Dying to Give

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

Are you ready, willing, even eager to escape prosperity in order to live simply and give lavishly for the cause of Christ and the glory of God?

Does your heart beat to have more in order to give more?

Do you have and find it hard to give? Perhaps this thought on Luke 20:25 from John Piper will help:

Render to God what is God's, namely, everything.

Giving lavishly is not an option. Giving lavishly won't be easy. Join the ranks, do the hard thing, join Christ and die to give.

If you've been saved, the blood of Christ has done a work in you.

The world will think you're dead, but in Christ you'll know that you are living with a great abundance that will last for all of eternity.

  1. You know, Sis, I think you just figured out the answer to the great Healthcare Concern Mr. Obama seems to have. Is HE willing to give up his luxuries and monies for those that are in need of medical help? Are the true Christians ready to give of their abundance to help those that don't have abundance?
