We constantly hear about God’s grace for sinners, but we don’t hear about God pouring his grace onto churches.
2 Corinthians 8
1And now, brothers, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. 2Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. 3For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, 4they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints.
God poured his grace on their churches, and this caused them to be generous and and overflow with joy during a time of trials and poverty. His grace transformed the culture of an entire church.
How much time are we spending pleading with God to pour his grace on our churches?
