Generosity is central to the heart of God. In fact, the gospel itself is a narrative of irrational generosity. God payed a debt that He did not owe because we owed a debt that we could not not pay. The most familiar verse in the Bible is probably John 3:16…this verse describes the overwhelming generosity found in God’s character and nature. The basic premise of the verse states, “For God so loved…that He gave…” God displays His love in His extreme generosity. At Redemption Calvary, we seek to have our lives follow the pattern and example of Jesus…even down to the way that we give.
“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly nor of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you always having all sufficiency in all things may have an abundance for every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:7-8
