Description

The first sermon in our series; "Monsters"

This week's scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

Over the next four weeks, our new series called "Monsters" is intended to help deal with the "monsters" that we live with in our lives and the world. This week is entitled "Vampires". We will look at some of the things that suck the life out of us.

In 2 Corinthians 9, the Apostle Paul is writing to the church in Corinth. His message in this chapter is simple; be a cheerful giver. We need air, drink, food, and shelter. We might have children, and if so, they have needs for viability, education, and love. We live in communities, in a state, in a nation with needs for freedom and protection of that freedom, let alone our creature comforts.

Living today can be a monstrous challenge. We are born into a world where we have finite resources and seemingly infinite insatiability. Where do we find joy and peace?

Paul suggests we can find joy and peace in our cheerful giving. Trusting God for provision leads to training our hearts to be cheerful which leads to taking caring of those around us through our generosity, and trusting in God. Paul might say that these are the keys to living, even in today's world.

Experience life to the fullest extent, filled with peace and joy!
