2 Corinthians 9:10-11
10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you. 11 Yes, you will be enriched in every way so that you can always be generous. And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will thank God.


9:10 The promise that God will increase the harvest should not be understood in material terms but in terms of increasing your righteousness. Thus the quoted OT texts (Isa. 55:10; Hos. 10:12) refer specifically to the provision of God’s word for the redemption of his people. God’s promise is that he will use his people and their resources as instruments of his grace for the salvation of others.
9:11 You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way. God will provide for the Corinthians’ needs so that they can continue generously meeting others’ needs and giving resources to advance the gospel.


  • God presents us with a stark choice: Hold on to what you have and you'll end up empty, OR offer it to God without restriction and you'll be filled. If you want to live a tidy, safe life, without leaving your comfort zone, you aren’t going to be of much use to anybody. But if you open your hands on all of it to God, He’ll use it beyond your wildest expectations. When it comes to all God has given you, are you open-handed or closed-fisted? Maybe somewhere in between? What would it look like to be open-handed?

  • God has blessed us, and with that blessing comes responsibility. We can't squander it... there are more people to reach and disciple. That's why God placed us in this community; to reach Lubbock and the nations. We must steward our blessing well. How have you stewarded all God has blessed you with? How might you improve in this area? 


  • That you would learn to be open-handed.
  • That you would be a good steward. 

This Week's City 7:

Try to commit to memory! 

2. Are there sources outside the Bible that confirm the Biblical account of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead? Many Roman and Jewish historians have confirmed that the apostles died as martyrs for preaching that they saw Jesus risen from the grave. No one dies for something they know to be a lie.
(Luke 1:1-4; Acts 26:26; 1 John 1:1-4, Josephus, Clement, Hegesippus, Tertullian, Origen, Polycarp)
