As irreversible as gravity! The law of sowing and reaping. There are bodies of water that never "give"; there is plenty of "inflow" but nothing flows out! Special names are reserved for such places: "Salton Sea", "Great Salt Lake", "Dead Sea"! And isn't it interesting that, even in our respiration, we must "give" if we want to "receive" and survive. Our Scripture this morning is telling us that the same is true for every Christian. Let's learn this priceless truth together!

"...so give proof before the churches of your love..." 2 Cor 8: 24 ESV Paul had been bragging about the corinthians Christians: how enthusiastic they were about that Jerusalem Offering! But that was a year ago and now it's time to collect the offering. What if things have change? What if passions have cooled and people are having second thoughts? Oh, it's "proof-time" in Corinth! Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange CA  From his series: 2 Corinthians: You The Ultimate Survivor.

"Though He was rich, yet for your sake, He became poor..." 2 Cor 8:9 It all began when ruthless persecution smote the Christians in Jerusalem. A few years later came terrible famine. That's when Paul came up with a brilliant inspiration: what if the non-Jewish Christians took up a collection? Yes! The "children" of the Gospel now blessing the spiritual "parents". It was an outlandish idea! And God has been using Christians to bless the world ever since!
