2 Corinthians 8:9-15

Have you ever felt such a strong desire to fulfill something that you felt God wanted you to do, such as volunteering to help a group, giving to a cause, teaching a Bible Study, or leading a group, only to walk away and never follow through?

In this passage Paul is exhorting this group of believers about the same thing. They started to be generous in giving to their fellow believers in Jerusalem, but there are those in their midst who are leading them to think this collection is being misused. Paul is exhorting them to believe the honorable intent of this collection and the need that their fellow brothers in Jesus in Jerusalem have for this collection. What has God been calling you to do that you have been ignoring or on which you have not followed through? Begin now to fulfill what He has shown you to do. If you don’t know how to start, seek counsel from our ministry staff. We will be glad to help.
