The PRACTICAL EXAMPLE OF JESUS
Jesus – visit sick and imprisoned
WHAT did they deserve ?
– actions on the cross
WHAT did they deserve
WHAT do we deserve ?
WHERE DOES GRACE BELONG ? JUDGEMENT?
Keep on loving each other as brothers. Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”
GENEROSITY IS LIFE CHANGING BECAUSE:
1. It clarifies calling
Mission and purpose – we are here to do more than consume, more than simply exist. Leave a mark!
2. It Reorientates priorities
Declutters wall with God
Introduces authentic walk with God to those watching.
God is in the business of changing lives…
Generosity brings the invitation to tear down those walls.
