This is episode four of a six part series. Several years ago when I was a pastor at Door of Hope church we challenged the entire church to read the whole New Testament in 90 days. These teachings were my attempt to guide people through the big ideas and theological themes of the New Testament.
In this teaching we'll explore Paul's vision of Jesus-style generosity in 2 Corinthians chapter 8. In Paul's mind, the good news about Jesus becomes most persuasive when his followers are living with incredible generosity. Giving away resources when it makes no sense is a powerful way of showing people that Jesus is truly the risen Lord of the world.
