2nd Corinthians: Living Life through the Lens of the Gospel
"We Want Your Money-and We'll Do ALMOST Anything To Get It"
March 5, 2017. Message by Pastor Joe Hellerman, based on 2 Corinthians 8:16 - 9:15. Other scriptures referenced include Acts 11:29-30, Romans 15:25-27, Galatians 2:9-10, and Ephesians 2:14-15.
The full title of Pastor Joe's message is revealing! "We Want Your Money - And We'll Do Almost Anything To Get It!" Pastor Joe gives an in-depth study of Paul's strategy to continue his collection of funds for the hurting church in Jerusalem.
Here is our "take-away" from this great study on giving. A generous church 1) relieves poverty and meets needs, 2) displays unity - which sends a message to the world of the love of Christ, and 3) glorifies God, or "makes God famous."
