Ultimate Generosity

Willow Glen Baptist and City Church are a generous group of people. I can personally think of numerous, great examples of when they have been generous to others and myself. And then I thought about why we are a generous people. I think it is because we are the recipients of ultimate generosity.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

It’s not just a simple verse to memorize, or a sign waved at sporting events.

It’s God, giving not of his excess but his one and only son. Given so that He could be the propitiation, or atoning sacrifice, on our behalf.

And in our generosity we reflect God’s ultimate generosity. And others see the power of the Gospel.

It is all about Jesus, and it is all about the Gospel.
