Scripture Readings (ESV)



A) 2 Corinthians 8 We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. For they gave according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints— and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us.                                                                              


      1. Give S_____.
      2. Give S_____________.
      3. Give S_________________ly.
      4. Give S_________________ly.

B) Acts 114 All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer…

C) Ephesians 4 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.




A) Hebrews 13 17 Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.


B) Titus 215 Declare these things; exhort and rebuke with all authority. Let no one disregard you.

C) 2 Corinthians 11But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

D) Romans 14 19 So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.
