1 Principles of New Testament (Grace) Giving 2 Corinthians 8-9

2 Matthew 6:21 Phillips For wherever your treasure is, you may be certain that your heart will be there too!”

3 God doesn’t use guilt or pressure or manipulation to get anyone to give.

4 New Testament Giving: 1.Is a matter of the heart.

5 2 Corinthians 8:3-4 3 For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord,

6 2 Corinthians 8:3-4 4 begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints,

7 New Testament Giving: 1.Is a matter of the heart. 2.Is a God-enabled giving.

8 2 Corinthians 8:7 But just as you abound in everything, in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in the love we inspired in you, see that you abound in this gracious work also.

9 New Testament Giving: 1.Is a matter of the heart. 2.Is a God-enabled giving. 3.Begins with the gift of ourselves.

10 2 Corinthians 8:5 and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.

11 New Testament Giving: 1.Is a matter of the heart. 2.Is a God-enabled giving. 3.Begins with the gift of ourselves. 4.Is not dependent upon our financial circumstances.

12 2 Corinthians 8:2-3 HCSB During a severe testing by affliction, their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed into the wealth of their generosity. 3 I testify that, on their own, according to their ability and beyond their ability,

13 New Testament Giving: 5.Is a sacrificial giving.

14 2 Corinthians 8:9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.

15 1 Chronicles 21:24 But King David said to Ornan, “No, but I will surely buy it for the full price; for I will not take what is yours for the L ORD, or offer a burnt offering which costs me nothing.”

16 2 Corinthians 8: For if the readiness is present, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have. 13 For this is not for the ease of others and for your affliction, but by way of equality—

17 2 Corinthians 8: at this present time your abundance being a supply for their need, so that their abundance also may become a supply for your need, that there may be equality;

18 2 Corinthians 8: as it is written, “H E WHO gathered MUCH DID NOT HAVE TOO MUCH, AND HE WHO gathered LITTLE HAD NO LACK.”

19 New Testament Giving: 5.Is a sacrificial giving. 6.Is proportional giving. 7.Is determined in each Christian’s heart.

20 2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

21 2 Corinthians 9:7 ERV Each one of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give. You should not give if it makes you unhappy or if you feel forced to give. God loves those who are happy to give.

22 2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

23 New Testament Giving: 5.Is a sacrificial giving. 6.Is proportional giving. 7.Is determined in each Christian’s heart. 8.Is our response to God’s Gift!

24 2 Corinthians 9:15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

25 2 Corinthians 9:15 ERV Thanks be to God for his gift that is too wonderful to describe.
