2 Corinthians 8 and 9

Chapters 8 and 9 of 2 Corinthians contain Paul’s discourse on giving. There are phrases in these chapters that are quoted often before the weekly collection is made. Although these phrases are familiar and true, I have come to believe that we are missing a more important point that Paul makes and that I have never heard quoted and that is that giving is an “act of grace” and that we are to “excel in this grace of giving.” The intent of this sermon is not to get people to put more money in the collection plate but to put more grace in our lives.
