The Power of "Us"

May 19, 2019 Pastor: Jonathan Glisson Series: Generous

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 8:1–8:8

Introduction: What happens when Generosity goes from Personal to Plural- from “Me” to “Us”? We the Church, are the “Us” in Generous.

From Me to Us…

     Generosity is Motivated by Joy (2 Corinthians 8:1-2)

     Generosity is Measured in the “Above & Beyond (2 Corinthians 8:3)

     Generosity is Marked as a Privilege, not an Obligation (2 Corinthians 8:4a)

           Obligation    VS.    Privilege

           Reacts    VS.    Plans

           Decision based on Emotion   VS.  Decision based on Holy Spirit

           Give because they Ought to    VS.    Give because they Want to

     Generosity is Multiplied when One joins Many (2 Corinthians 8:4b-5a)

     Generosity is Married to Worship (2 Corinthians 8:5b)

     Generosity is Modeled through Love, not a Command (2 Corinthians 8:6-8)

Application: God uses the “Us” in Generous to accomplish great things for His Kingdom. Are you one of “Us”? If not, join Us!
