08:01 .. now .. brethren .. we wish to make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia
08:02 .. that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality
08:03 .. for I testify that according to their ability .. and beyond their ability .. they gave of their own accord

080808 a biblical model for giving .. part 4 of 4 .. Recorded Dec 17 1995 Image

08:04 .. begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints
08:05 .. and this .. not as we had expected .. but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God
08:06 .. so we urged Titus that as he had previously made a beginning .. so he would also complete in you this gracious work as well
08:07 .. 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
08:08 .. I am not speaking this as a command .. but as proving through the earnestness of others the sincerity of your love also

080809 The Poverty that Made Us Rich .. Recorded Jan 07 1996 Image

08:09 .. 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

080810 stewardship with integrity .. part 1 of 4 .. Recorded Jan 28 1996 Image

08:10 .. I give my opinion in this matter .. for this is to your advantage .. who were the first to begin a year ago not only to do this .. but also to desire to do it
08:11 .. but now finish doing it also .. so that just as there was the readiness to desire it .. so there may be also the completion of it by your ability
08:12 .. for if the readiness is present .. it is acceptable according to what a person has .. not according to what he does not have

080811 stewardship with integrity .. part 2 of 4 .. Recorded Feb 04 1996 Image

08:13 .. for this is not for the ease of others and for your affliction .. but by way of equality
08:14 .. 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
08:15 .. as it is written . . . he who gathered much did not have too much .. and he who gathered little had no lack
08:16 .. but thanks be to God who puts the same earnestness on your behalf in the heart of Titus
08:17 .. for he not only accepted our appeal .. but being himself very earnest .. he has gone to you of his own accord

080812 stewardship with integrity .. part 3 of 4 .. Recorded Feb 11 1996 Image

08:18 .. we have sent along with him the brother whose fame in the things of the gospel has spread through call the churches
08:19 .. and not only this .. but he has also been appointed by the churches to travel with us in this gracious work ..
......... which is being administered by us for the glory of the Lord himself .. and to show our readiness
08:20 .. taking precaution so that no one will discredit us in our administration of this generous gift
08:21 .. for we have regard for what is honorable .. not only in the sight of the Lord .. but also in the sight of men
08:22 .. we have sent with them our brother .. whom we have often tested and found diligent in many things ..
......... but now even more diligent because of his great confidence in you
08:23 .. as for Titus .. he is my partner and fellow worker among you .. as for our brethren .. they are messengers of the churches .. a glory to Christ
08:24 .. therefore openly before the churches .. show them the proof of your love and of our reason for boasting about you

Those who truly love the Lord Jesus who became poor for our sakes .. making us rich in eternal things .. cannot but dedicate their temporal riches to his disposal for the relief of brethren in Christ who are in need .. his rewards for Christian liberality will be based on the will to do .. rather than the ability to do .. and he takes notice .. not of what we give .. but what we have left . . . . v 9 our Lord Jesus .. equal in power and glory with the Father .. rich in all the glory and blessedness of the upper world .. yet for our sakes became .. literally .. “a beggar” .. we are thereby made rich in the blessings and promises of the new covenant and the hopes of eternal life .. shall we hold on to our dollars when they are needed for his cause .. the best arguments for Christian duties are those taken from the love Christ has manifested to us
