Extravagant Generosity

Extravagant Generosity

Sermon Introduction –

God calls us to share with generosity! But what does it mean to be truly “generous?” Why is it important for us to give? This Sunday, we’ll explore how we can be better stewards of God’s love.

Introduction to this week’s readings –

This Sunday’s image of the life the risen Christ shares with us is the image of friendship. We are called to serve others as Jesus came to serve; but for John’s gospel, the image of servanthood is too hierarchical, too distant, to capture the essence of life with Christ. Friendship captures the love, the joy, the deep mutuality of the relationship into which Christ invites us. The Greeks believed that true friends are willing to die for each other. This is the mutual love of Christian community commanded by Christ and enabled by the Spirit.
