Speaker: Pastor Keith Goullette
Theme: Church Life
Thesis: Just Do It!
Scripture Text: II Corinthians 8:9-15 (next week: II Corinthians 8:16-24)
I. Example - v. 9
II. Equality - v. 10-13
III. Eventually - v. 14-15
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
I CORINTHIANS 16:2
On the first day of every week each one of you is to put aside and save, as he may prosper, so that no collections be made when I come.
So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
I JOHN 3:17
But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?
SCRIPTURE TEXT—II CORINTHIANS 8:9-15
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich. I give my opinion in this matter, for this is to your advantage, who were the first to begin a year ago not only to do this, but also to desire to do it. But now finish doing it also, so that just as there was the readiness to desire it, so there may be also the completion of it by your ability. For if the readiness is present, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have. For this is not for the ease of others and for your affliction, but by way of equality— at this present time your abundance being a supply for their need, so that their abundance also may become a supply for your need, that there may be equality; as it is written, “He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little had no lack.”
