2Corinthians 9:6  But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.  7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.


Our focus this week has been on the importance of giving.  Our verse in Luke has delivered unto us much truth.  Today we move to two verses in 2Corinthians 9.  These are familiar verses that we rarely have the bravery to study because they convict us of our slothfulness.  Verse 6 powerfully backs up the study we just had in Luke.  If we give sparingly then we can expect to reap sparingly.  If we are faithful enough to give bountifully then we will reap bountifully.  Amen!  I am most interested in verse 7.  Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give”.  You see, the way we give determines the condition of our heart.  If our heart is spiritually cold and backslid then our giving will stink.  We will give very little time to study.  We will spend very little time praying.  We will spend virtually no time in the spirit of worship.  And we will most likely give very little financially.  Many Christians become offended quickly when their money is mentioned.  This is because they have spiritual heart sickness.  Dear friend, giving helps keep our heart right with God.  Our verse makes it clear that a Christian with a clean and clear heart will have liberty to give according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity.  This giver is not stingy.  He gives like he knows there is an eternal supply.  He doesn’t give to get.  He gives because he has a great pulling and fulfilling desire to give.  Giving feeds his soul.  Giving satisfies him spiritually.  You see Holy Ghost filled giving delivers unspeakable glory.  The ending of this verse is powerful.  God loveth a cheerful giver”.  Wow!  What can we say to that?!  It pleases GOD if we are a spiritually right giver.  God favors a spiritually right giver.  Whew!  Wow!  My friend if there is no other reason to give right it is because God loveth a cheerful giver.  Determine to be a cheerful giver.  Stop being stingy and miserable.  If you are offended at giving then you are not right with God.  You are most likely selfish and your God is self.  Our giving reports our fellowship with the Lord Jesus.  Amen.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.


This verse contains the secret to a victorious Christian life.  For the past few days it has opened up more and more of its power to us.  We have learned that it does not pay to have a selfish self centered life.  This existing generation is a pitiful sight in the eyes of God when it comes to giving.  We are guilty of giving like we may run out.  I saw a water fountain a while back that had a large wooden bucket that was tilted so that the water would pour out in a large stream.  Above the bucket… may I repeat… “above” the bucket was a water spout with a stream of water of the same size as that pouring out of the bucket.  The spout was filling the bucket with the same exact amount of water that was pouring out of the bucket.  The name of the fountain was “An Eternal Supply”.  Hold on I will be back!  I must run around the house a time or two!!  Glory to God!  He has an eternal supply of the needs we have in our life!  I am thinking of all those times He has been so faithful!!  Friend, don’t give like you are gonna run out.  If you give in that frame of mind then you will probably come up short.  Notice the last phrase of our verse.  For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again”.  Dear friend, ever how we give will be how we receive.  Give stingy and you might have a bank account full of money but you will be spiritually miserable.  You may have nice carnal things purchased with that stolen money but your spirit is aching for spiritual joy.  Give my friend and ye shall receive.  What area are you robbing yourself?  Is it spiritually?  Is it financially?  When we have a stingy spirit then we are robbing our own selves.  Give more in studying the Word and you will see things you have never seen.  Give more in prayer and you will experience more miracles than ever.  Give more financially and you will not have room enough to hold the blessings of God as they pour out of the windows of Heaven (Malachi 3:7-12).  My friend, we cannot out give God.  He said in Malachi 3:10 “prove me now herewith”.  My, My!  The power of giving cannot be measured.  Amen.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.


What a verse!  What a promise!  So far we have learned the great importance of giving.  If we need to receive then we first must have a giving spirit.  If we sacrificially give then super receiving can be expected.  Notice our verse.  If we have a giving spirit then we will be given unto with “good measure”.  Good measure means not at all shorted.  So if we don’t give skimpy then we will receive fully.  I would hate to know I was short on a need because I was stingy in my giving.  Many times the chaos we receive is simply a reaping of our slackness somewhere in our commitment.  Our verse gets real strong on the description of this receiving.  Not only will it be good measure but also we see it will be “pressed down”.  This describes filling a container with something you are giving someone and you then press it down to make room for more.  Remember He said it would be good measure if we gave good measure.  If we fill a 5 gallon bucket with cotton then it is 5 gallons of cotton until we press it down.  Now it is more like 4 gallon in measurement even though it is 5 gallon of material.  So another gallon is added to make the bucket full.  Wow, now we have a 6 gallon blessing in a 5 container.  Do you get it?  We cannot out give God!  We are guilty of giving like we are gonna run out.  If we give with a giving heart it will be impossible to run out!  Let’s start from the top.  Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom”.  God is so faithful.  We must learn to give like we are giving to our own life.  Not half, not a slice, not a sip, not skimpy whatsoever, but give full, pressed down, shaken together then refilled.  Amen and Amen.  We will finish this great verse tomorrow.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.


Let’s go further into this great verse.  The first word is the key word to the entire verse.  “GIVE”.  If you are a selfish self-centered person you will have a sense of offence when that word is mentioned.  Say the word with me… “Give”.  Until it feels good to ponder on “giving”, we are not right spiritually.  If we want to experience some deep joys of the Lord we must first have a giving spirit.   Give, and it shall be given unto you.  As we move further we see there are rewards for giving.  If we give in praying for others then the Lord will see to it that He burdens others to pray for us.  If we study the Word that we may grow closer to Him then the Lord will see to it that we will get more meat from the Word than ever.  If we give in worship then the Lord will see to it that more glory is displayed in our worship.  If we give financially, led of the Lord, then the Lord will see to it that we are blessed financially.  Do you get what I’m saying?  Give and it shall be given unto you.  Give to someone in need and the Lord will see to it that we are given to when we are in need.  Be kind to someone and He will see to it that someone is kind to you.  Pray that someone else is healed and the Lord just might heal you.  Ask Him to encourage someone else and He just might see that you are encouraged when you are down.  Give a love offering to a need and you might just receive a love offering when you need one.  Shout when you don’t feel like it and the Lord will pour the glory on you and allow you to shout because you do feel like it.  Wow!  Give and it shall be given unto you.  That’s about all we can swallow today.  We will go further tomorrow.  Amen.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.


What a verse!  This verse has always caught my full attention every time I cross paths with it.  Our Lord is really relaying an important message here to His people.  If a Christian can ever really get hold of this one verse their life will change forever.  The majority of Christians today are so self centered and self righteous that they will never experience the deep joys of the Christian life like they could if they would only commit to the Lord.  We sometimes make the mistake of thinking dedication is the same as commitment.  There is a vast difference.  We can be dedicated and never miss a church service.  We can be dedicated to our position in the church and appear as an asset to the church.  Dedication just means we showed up for role call.  Commitment on the other hand will cost you something.  Commitment will cost us mentally, physically, spiritually and financially.  It is a price given that is priceless!  Dedication will only give us a sense of self-esteem.  On the other hand, commitment will increase our faith, our spiritual stability, our love for the Lord and our fellowship with Him.  If you want to be a true Christian then commitment is a must.  Our verse for today describes a must attribute of a committed Christian… “Giving”.  We must have a giving spirit.  So many people have a taking spirit.  The Lord Jesus displayed to us the greatest example of giving.  His whole life on earth was giving.  He gave to the benefit of others everywhere He went.  And in the end He gave the supreme sacrifice of His life.  If we too wish to be committed then we must learn to give sacrificially.  Let’s do a short evaluation of our life.  How much time do I spend praying for others each day?  How much time do I spend studying the Word?  How often do I take time out of my schedule to serve someone else?  Am I just dedicated to attending church or am I totally committed to worship?  We could go on, but you get the idea.  Dear friend be careful not to allow your life to be based on and around the carnal things that will not matter when the trumpet blows!  We will pick up here tomorrow.  Amen.    

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
