3 Keys To Living A Christ-centered Life – Part 3
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3 v 16 (NIV, emphasis added)
“Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5 v 7-8 (NIV, emphasis added)
Out of His love for us, God gave… Out of His love for us, Christ died…
Erroneously, some followers of Jesus Christ ascribe generosity to giving money; while that could be a part of it, how does the Bible define generosity? Why does our sovereign God call us to be generous, and how does a follower of Jesus Christ live out a life of generosity?
TSV family! Grab your Bibles, open up your journals and let’s feast on the Verity that is the Word of God.
The hosts of your favorite podcasts asked and answered:
- Using Scripture, how would you define generosity? — 07:25
- Why does our sovereign God call us to be generous, and how does a follower of Jesus Christ live out a life of generosity? — 31:18
- What doors have opened for you through the generosity of our sovereign God?— 51:54
We are created in the image and likeness and have decided to follow Christ as our Lord and Savior; generosity should now be woven into our DNA through His indwelling Spirit.
We should like a funnel pouring out all that’s been given to us. Generosity is a lifestyle—an attitude and a state of mind. As followers of Jesus Christ, there are so many avenues through which we can be generous—our time, skills, and resources- but one crucial area is the eternal salvation of the world. We should share this good news of God’s gift of forgiveness and eternal life to as many as are willing to hear it so that we will carry out the mandate in Matthew 28:19-20.
TSV family! If you are a faithful follower of Jesus Christ who is sincerely seeking to live a Christ-centered life, submit to His sovereign authority, ask Him for His wisdom, and be generous with all He’s so freely given to you—starting with the good news of the gospel.
All His blessings!
