Living Generously Month

Living Generously
Sermon Series
Sermon Outline for Sunday, November 8, 2015
 
“From the Kingdom of Self to the Kingdom of God”
When Paul talks about Spiritual Gifts, such as in Romans 12:8,
or Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22,
he is talking about the Holy Spirit doing something in us, that
empowers us and gives us the ability to live differently.
Therefore, generosity is not so much something done through us
as it is something done in us and for us by God.
Living Generously is giving ourselves and our resources
in ways such as Jesus talks about in Matthew 25:31-40 this morning:
feeding the hungry, caring for the sick,
clothing the needy, welcoming the stranger,
 acting compassionately toward those in bondage,
 Good Works are not what grow a generous spirit in us,
 but it is allowing God’s Holy Spirit to grow a generous spirit in us
that produces Good Works.
Our journey from the Kingdom of Self to the Kingdom of God
therefore involves surrender.
Our part is to relinquish our time, talent, possessions and resources
to the sovereignty of God .
