1. God wants us to know about grace.
2. God’s grace is a justice without compromise, and a love to the uttermost, which has real power to enter into human lives, and change us for our true good.
3. Money does not naturally create generosity to others, but God’s grace grows generosity to others.
4. The Bible never romanticizes poverty. The Bible tells us of how God’s grace frees, dignifies and empowers the poor and the powerless.
5. God does not have any needs. He does not need “your” money. God loves you as a person and longs to have you return to Him.
6. The Bible encourages us to let God’s love grow within us, and run its course in us, by us taking the “next steps”.
7. 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 by His poverty might become rich. 2 Cor. 8:9 ESV
8. Lord, I re-commit myself to You. Please make me a disciple of Jesus, who is not ruled by money, but is gripped by the Gospel, and freed up to live a generous life for the good of people and for the glory of God.
9. Dear Lord and Saviour, please make me a disciple of Jesus gripped by the Gospel learning to live for Your glory.
