sermonette: Giving Flows From the Focused Work of God
Given 31-May-20; 17 minutes
Mark Schindler, focusing upon the unfaithful servant in Matthew 25, warns that God has given each one of His people spiritual responsibilities as well as gifts enabling them to perform those responsibilities. If God's people keep their focus upon His purpose for them as outlined by His Holy Days, they will be able to accomplish the work God has given them. This is all part of the sanctification process, in which God's Holy Spirit enables His people to learn what is pleasing to Him. While the around-and-about is exploding, God has been generously pouring out His spiritual gifts upon His Elect (II Corinthians 8:1-15). If the children of Light give themselves totally to God in thanksgiving, He will enable them to finish their part in what He has started.
