Sermon Outline

1. In God’s Kingdom opportunities don’t translate into ministry until they’re joined to generosity.


2. God’s ministry to us began in His generosity! (2 Corinthians 8:9)

3. Affluence can easily compromise generosity and commitment. 
 

4. Selfishness isn’t defeated by guilt. It’s defeated by heart-changing truth - specifically the truth about grace. 
 

5. Guilt is a demonic counterfeit of grace! It may motivate giving for a season, but it won’t sustain giving over the long haul!  And it doesn’t honor God!  
 

6. Giving that honors God flows out of the Spirit - not emotional reactions to appeals or pressure.

7. Guilt, lies, formulas, and manipulation are totally inappropriate for a love relationship. 

8. Grace-motivated giving is both voluntary and cheerful!

9. Giving can’t be commanded; it can only be commended as evidence of love. (2 Corinthians 8:8)   

10. Grace-motivated giving produces life in others.
