"CONCERNING THE COLLECTION"
1 CORINTHIANS 16:1-4
INTRO: One of the great commands of scripture is found in Ephesians 5:1 where it says, "BE YE FOLLOWERS OF GOD, AS DEAR CHILREN." Now certainly there are MANY WAYS we can fulfill that admonition as Christians but when the concept of FOLLOWING GOD is studied, one particular area of following Him that rises to the top of the kettle is GIVING! Think about it. God has given us so many things. But the GREATEST THING HE GAVE US was JESUS CHRIST HIS SON...John 3:16. GOD IS A GIVING GOD! He has given us life, provision, care, families, breath, health, brains, and the GREATEST GIFT OF ALL....SALVATION THROUGH JESUS CHIRST. And so, if we are going to FOLLOW GOD AS HE EXPECTS, one way to do so is in GIVING TO HIM. GIVING TO THE LORD IS A GREAT WAY TO SHOW OUR LOVE FOR HIM, AS HE GAVE HIS BEST FOR US THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. Today I want us to consider the concept of BIBLICAL GIVING under the title of "CONCERNING THE COLLECTION."

"THE WOMAN THAT PLEASES GOD"
SCRIPTURE: PROVERBS 31:10-31
TEXT: PROVERBS 31:30
INTRO: Proverbs 31 is very unique and clear in giving the qualities God desires in every woman. Therefore every woman would do well to study Proverbs 31 CONSISTENTLY in order to understand what it is teaching and then conform her life to the principles therein. PROVERBS 31:10-31 DESCRIBES THE WOMAN THAT PLEASES GOD AND IT IS POSSIBLE, THROUGH THE INDWELLING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, FOR EVERY WOMAN TO APPLY THESE PRINCIPLES TO HER LIFE! Observe what this woman is all about:
1) She is Virtuous - Vs. 10: Meaning that she is a woman of HIGH VALUE AND EXCELLENCE.
2) She is Quality Endowed - Vss. 11-29: Trustworthy, Responsible, Strong, Industrious, Diligent, Helpful, Generous, Fearless, True, Real, Influential, Kind, A Leader, Blessed by her family, and Beautiful in Character.
3) She FEARS THE LORD - Vs. 30: She recognizes God's greatness and respects Him in every thought, word, and deed of her life.

“DO YOU REALLY LOVE THE BIBLE?
INTRO: DO YOU LOVE THE BIBLE? IF YOU ANSWER YES, HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU LOVE THE BIBLE? These may seem like simple questions, but in reality they are very serious questions as it relates to our walk with the Lord. WHEN WE LOVE THE BIBLE, WE WILL LIVE FOR THE LORD. WHEN WE DO NOT LOVE THE BIBLE, WE DO NOT LIVE FOR THE LORD. Now the problem is that there are many Christians who “SAY” they LOVE THE BIBLE but their life style does not show it. You see, when you love the Bible, your life will reveal the Bible in attitudes, actions and activities. So, before we go any further in this sermon, let me ask you this question, and please be honest with your self. DOES YOUR LIFE REVEAL THE BIBLE TO OTHERS? Today from Psalm 119 we are going to see what loving the Bible really is all about and I pray we will all truthfully examine our lives accordingly.
“MOVING AHEAD WITH RESPONSIBILITY”
2 CORINTHIANS 5:8-11
INTRO: The Christian life is a GREAT LIFE! There is no other type of living in the world, religious or non-religious, that offers all of the love, joy, peace, strength, mercy and hope as the CHRISTIAN LIFE. But the Christian life is more than the here and now! In fact, by its very nature, the Christian life is one that is to MOVE FORWARD WITH RESPONSIBILITY that, if properly lived will result in GREAT REWARD FROM GOD HIMSELF. The passage we have before us is one that presents FOUR CLEAR PRINCIPLES that are necessary for MOVING FORWARD WITH RESPONSIBILITY in the Christian life that will result in believers hearing God utter the phrase “WELL DONE, THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT.” Let’s observe.
