The Gift That Keeps On Giving ~ 2 Corinthians 9 ~ 15 March 2015
Money may not grow on trees, but in 2 Corinthians 9 Paul speaks of ‘fields of gold’ growing in the lives of those who willingly confess to the gospel of Christ and submit to the grace of God. These are fields of righteousness and grace, sown in joy with seeds supplied by God, producing grain which is grown and harvested by God, and then multiplied and increased further by God. All of it, producing more and more, harvest after bountiful harvest of joy and righteousness, so that we might give and sow all the more in order that we will be enriched in every way and there might be a rich harvest thanksgiving and glory to God! Sounds pretty wonderful doesn’t it!?
None of this would be possible if it were not for God’s own willing and generous giving, in the ‘inexpressible gift’ of grace through his Son. He alone is able to make “all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work!” Thanks be to Him, who sows more bountifully than we could ever imagine, for his inexpressible gift!
