Series: Opening the Windows of Heaven

2 Corinthians 9:6-11
I. PRICINPLES WHICH PRECED HILARIOUS GIVING
II. PRINCIPLES WHICH PERFECT HILARIOUS GIVING
If you have your Bible, I want us to open God's word to Second Corinthians Chapter 9; we are going to begin in Verse 6. We are talking about the exciting theme of Opening the Windows of Heaven.
I believe God is wanting to open the windows of heaven to our church. I'm telling you these three services and I'm telling you the Lord just blessed, they are better today than they were last week. I'm just excited about what God has for us
I'm excited when I realize God has promised in His word to open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that there would not be room to receive it. It just tells me how much God loves me and cares for me and how much He loves you as His child.
Today I want to talk about opening the windows of heaven through hilarious giving. Paul has been speaking to the church at Corinth in Chapters 8 and 9 about the offering that he is going to be receiving when he arrives and he has been preparing them and telling them how they are to give.
So beginning in Verse 6 he says. ''BUT THIS I SAY, HE WHICH SOWETH SPARINGLY SHALL REAP ALSO SPARINGLY; AND HE WHICH SOWETH BOUNTIFULLY SHALL REAP ALSO BOUNTIFULLY. EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HE PURPOSETH IN HIS HEART, SO LET HIM GIVE; NOT GRUDGINGLY, OR OF NECESSITY: FOR GOD LOVETH A CHEERFUL GIVER.
AND GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TOWARD YOU; THAT YE, ALWAYS HAVING ALL SUFFICIENCY IN ALL THINGS, MAY ABOUND TO EVERY GOOD WORK: (AS IT IS WRITTEN, HE HATH DISPERSED ABROAD; HE HATH GIVEN TO THE POOR: HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS REMAINETH FOR EVER.
NOW HE THAT MINISTERETH SEED TO THE SOWER BOTH MINISTER BREAD FOR YOUR FOOD, AND MULTIPLY YOUR SEED SOWN, AND INCREASE THE FRUITS OF YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS;) BEING ENRICHED IN EVERY THING TO ALL BOUNTIFULNESS, WHICH CAUSETH THROUGH US THANKSGIVING TO GOD.''
