Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 9:8


9:8 How remarkable are these words! Each is loaded with matter and increases all the way it goes. All grace - Every kind of blessing. That ye may abound to every good work - God gives us everything, that we may do good therewith, and so receive more blessings. All things in this life, even rewards, are, to the faithful, seeds in order to a future harvest. #Prov 22:9|

    Hope - I do not understand the comment "directed to the israelits not anybody else". Those in Achaia and Corinth were belivers not just Israelites. Are you making the distinction between regular tithing and simple helping those in time of need?

    Verse 15 talks about the indescribable or unspeakable gift that God has given us by the sacrifice of Jesus' life in our behalf.
  • I have been going through verses about tighing, it was indeed directed to the israelits not anybody else, but as you know people takes advantage of other people especially if you are lazy to read scriptures. God loves a cheerfully giver
  • I think that it shall be a good lesson for children to learn what is a reward of working hard and will encourage others to work hard to get good rewards and if you fail and work a little you will gets conseqences.

    God loves a cheerful giver, giving tithes is our obedience in Christ. God is our supply and all things belongs to him. We must share our blessings and this is the fruit of our blessing from God that we have sowed. God have commanded us to do what he says coz By Giving we can only recieve God 's blessings. We must love one another as he commanded us to do. He who loves Jesus will keep his commandments until rapture. Thanks God for the blood he shed for us.
