Msg #1301 The Liberal Soul

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

For our Church to be faithful to the commission Christ gave we must take part in sending foreign evangelists preaching the gospel around the world. We have the Picketts in Manitoba, and support, in a small part, a dozen other missionaries around the globe. We want to do more in 2013. We are blessed with folks who give sacrificially and specifically to these missions. Paul's letter to the Philippians closes with six encouragements about their outreach. 1) Stay Faithful - “Now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful.” (4:10) 2) Stay Content - “For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” (4:11) Paul told Timothy “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” Christ instructed us “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” 3) Stay in Communication - “Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.“ (4:15) 4) Stay Fruit Bearing - “Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.” (4:17) 5) Stay God Pleasing - “But I have all, and abound: I am full, ... an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.” (4:18) and finally 6) Stay God Believing - “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (4:19) Philippi had here a great encouragement to stay liberal in their missions obligation. So do we. “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.“
