GENEROSITY WITH A PURPOSE
Psalms 145:16 (KJV)
Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
In today’s world going beyond the generic perception that generosity is to do only with money, is more like walking out of our comfort zone. We must strive to explore how generosity needs to be demonstrated in our relationships,church and everyday lives. In other words we must understand and believe that generosity is a lifestyle which is an essential response to the gospel.
So what is generosity? There will never be a greater example of generosity than God himself- He gave us the most generous gift ever: His son Jesus. Let us understand this truth of generosity on a deeper note, “for God so greatly loved the world that He gave up His only begotten Son, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” When we closely look into this scripture, we see how God had a purpose behind this act of generosity, a noble purpose, where God gave up His only son to reconcile with His children.
Imagine what would happen if the church began to respond to God’s generosity (purpose) and started living it out? What would happen if children of God were known for extravagant generosity? What would happen if our neighbours, coworkers and strangers took notice? Let us explore what purpose driven generosity looks like.
As children of God, we are called not only to be blessed but also be blessings, God can use our purpose driven generosity to spread the gospel and change lives. God bless!
Order is important. Whatever you value last assumes all the pressure when money is tight. Every month you will run out of money, so does God get your leftovers or does God get your first? The average American Christian gives 2.5% of their income to their church. God asks us to tithe 10%, not because he needs the money, but because he wants your heart. ("For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21). If running your money your way isn't working why not try it God's way? Change the order. We're hoping you will want to try a 60-day tithe challenge with others at Lifepointe by putting God first in your finances and letting your lifestyle get the leftovers. Let us know how it goes. We'd love to hear your story.
А у нас девочка! Точнее у старшего преподавателя нашей воскрески Анжелики Насекиной @lika_a_n_g_e_l . Целых 3 кг и 100 граммов счастья и сплошного целования. Пусть Господь благословит юную Виолетту крепким здоровьем и послушным характером. Поздравляем молодых родителей и от всей души желаем, чтобы все чудеса, которые запланировал для них Господь, как можно скорее свершились в их жизни. Через 3 года ждем вашу малышку в воскресную школу!

I am so proud of this amazing revivalist/reformer wifey of mine! From the catwalk in Portugal to one of the biggest youth conferences in Southeast Asia in Malaysia speaking this weekend. She is demonstrating what it really looks like to walk in revival and reformation and make Jesus famous on the earth. Check out her caption below. ⬇️ #Repost @revivalistmirandanelson

We are building a church whose people are real about their struggles and serious about their joy. ••• We want to be full of gratitude and thanksgiving—enjoying Jesus, each other, and the beauty of God’s creations. We want to resist slipping into church-grumpiness; refusing to let the enemy steal our joy through gossip or grumbling or fear. ••• Why? Because thousands in Murfreesboro need a community of authentic and lasting happiness where they can see and meet Jesus—who is infinitely satisfying and determined to make our joy full (John 15:11). #peopleofhope#peopleofjoy#churchplanting#launchingsoon#church#joy
