Series: Immeasurably More 

Title: Who owns It?

Text: 2 Corinthians 8:9

SCRIPTURE: Talk together about this verse, specifically Jesus leaving riches to become poor, so that “you by his poverty might become rich.”  What does that mean?

How does our generosity help us imitate the life of Jesus?

ACCOUNTABILITY:   If I am proud of how I overcame past hurdles, am I really giving God the credit?  If I consider myself a “self-made man/woman,” do I have a clear understanding that God has provided all I have? (See Deuteronomy 8:18.)

TRANSFORMATION: If an outsider saw how I use my time, my energy, and my resources, what would they learn about my priorities? Try to put on that “outsider lens,” and take a look at what your time, energy and resources are building. Are you comfortable with what you see? 

What is God saying to you?

“A lack of generosity refuses to acknowledge that your assets are not really yours, but God’s,” C.S. Lewis

He Gets Us

Though Jesus walked the earth 2,000 years ago, He still knows about the problems you face today. Not only does Jesus know what plagues us as a culture, He gets us. Jesus can relate. He was tempted, too. He was disrespected, too. He was doubted, too. He mourned, too. He suffered, too.

Faith Church is joining other churches in the Chicagoland area for the series, He Gets Us. We’ll explore that Jesus knows about our insecurity, exhaustion, anxiety, guilt, loneliness and grief. Join us for this new series as we find assurance in knowing we aren’t alone in this world. We have a Savior who gets us and cares about what we are feeling.
