On Thursday afternoons at Between the Times, we highlight the writing of J. D. Greear, Pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, NC. This week he writes about the key to radical generosity.
Here’s an excerpt:
God is not now, nor has he ever looked, for “helpers” to assist him in saving the world. That doesn’t mean he isn’t calling us to give ourselves generously to that mission or be sacrificially generous with our neighbors; it’s just that he’s not looking for people to supply his needs. He’s not short on money, talent, or time. He has never commanded us to go save the world for him; he calls us to follow him as he saves the world through us.
