2 Cor. 8:5– “T3 in Bethel 3.0”
Sun. Sept. 16th 2018 – Pastor Stephan
Sermon Outline
I. There is an Overflow of Blessing as Believers Give of their Resources to Bless Others (2 Cor. 8:5a).
II. That Overflow begins as Believers give Themselves Fully to the Lord First (2 Cor. 8:5b).
III. The Giving of Ourselves and our Resources of Time, Talent and Treasure bring Glory and Praise to God (2 Cor. 8:5c).
Questions for Study and Reflection
1. Who is the most memorable historical saint in your opinion? What makes this person so remarkable?
2. Read 2 Cor. 8:1-7. What was the situation faced by the Macedonia churches? Who was the collection for?
3. What prompted the Macedonia churches to give as generously as they had? What is the importance of them giving themselves first to the Lord? What does this mean? What difference did that make? How did that happen?
4. What does Paul mean when he says “in keeping with God’s will?” What is this will? Does it apply to us today? If so, how? What is the ultimate goal of God’s will?
5. What resources has God placed at your disposal that could be used to advance His kingdom work? Take some time this week to do a short check up on how you are using your T3 (see point III), and perhaps ask the Lord what He may desire from you in the upcoming months.
