Sermon Recap | The Miracle of Generosity
In this week’s sermon, we looked at how the church in Macedonia experienced God’s grace and generosity amidst their trials and afflictions. As Jeff unpacked this text, we saw three aspects of gospel generosity. First, we saw the source of generosity as it comes from grace, which Paul described as undeserved favor and divine enablement. Second, we saw three marks of generosity:
- they gave beyond their ability (vs. 3a)
- they gave voluntarily, of their own accord (vs. 3b)
- they gave fervently (vs. 4).
The third aspect is the soul of generosity, which is giving ourselves to God and to the service of others.
