The lessons of stewardship are far greater than just managing money, they involve various decisions and actions from the very minute to the very great. The lessons taught in a Grace and Faith Seminar begin with an individuals faith, then his or her ability to love others. Then finally the ability to see resources in a biblical light and embrace a life of generosity.
Supplement your faith.
A One-Hour Seminar teaching us to be effective in the Kingdom based on the scriptures in 2 Peter 1:5–7 and 2 Corinthians 8:7-15.
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith ...
Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith...
Discover how to view faith in a proper perspective and answer questions like: Is living an effective Christian life dependent upon us generating more faith or just activating what faith we have. We will also explore seven directives which make our faith useful in the kingdom.
Growing in grace.
Some circles have taught that one can emplore God's financial blessing by giving a faith seed and giving to the right things at the right time. Many people have been swayed to believe that one can receive the treasure of a gracious God through actions and ignore the importance of a relationship with the Giver.
Growing in grace means to become more consciously impressed with the mercies of God rather than on the blessings he can bestow. This course is a one hour focus on our responsibility as believers to respond appropriately to his mercies and how we may serve graciously His kingdom.
Excel in Generosity.
A one hour dialogue of Acts 2:42-47 and generosity and how the early church embraced it and how the 21st century church can be active in generous living.
All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper[i]), and to prayer. 43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. 45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. 46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity[j]— 47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved.
The First and Foundational act of Christianity among believers was Generosity.
Generosity is, or should be, the central activity of the followers of Christ to reveal God to the world.
