1 Corinthians 16:1-4

My sermon notes for Sunday morning, Nov 6th.  Remember, these are my personal study notes and not a manuscript of the sermon. They are provided as an outline each week for our Tabernacle Church family. The church provides a live stream of the service each Sunday at 10:30 on Facebook. We also provide the services through YouTube by Sunday afternoon.  You can find Sermon Notes, Family Devotional Guides, Prayer List, and other resources at our Church Website.

1 Corinthians 16:1-4A Giving Heart


A Heart for Missions – v. 1

We give so that:

A Heart for Worship – v. 2

There are three kinds of giving: grudge giving, duty giving, and thanksgiving. Grudge giving says, “I have to”; duty giving says, “I ought to”; thanksgiving says, “I want to.”

Robert Rodenmeyer 

A Heart for Unity – vv. 3-4

It is interesting to read in Acts 20 the wide variety of people who did accompany Paul on his return to Jerusalem after his third missionary trip. Listed there are people from all the major areas from which Paul gathered funds (although no one is mentioned from Achaia): from Galatia, Gaius of Derbe and Timothy of Lystra; from Macedonia, Sopater of Berea, and Aristarchus and Secundus of Thessalonica; from Asia (Ephesus), Tychicus and Trophimus, and (indirectly) Luke from Troas.
