Sermon Summary

December 3, 2017

Pastor Shawn



Psalm 23:1–3, Hebrews 11:6-10, Haggai 1:5–11, 1 John 3:16-18, 1 Thessalonians 2:8, 2 Corinthians 9:6–15, Neh. 5 17, Gal. 6:7-10


  • We were designed to be fully reliant on the Good Shepherd (Psalm 23:1-3)
  • God frustrates our efforts to be self-sufficient and for our own kingdom so we will rely fully on Him (Haggai 1:5-11)
  • The Gospel secures us, and shows us the level of God’s generosity through Christ
  • We can give sacrificially, generously, and joyfully if we know the measure of God’s care and love for us

Sending Questions

  1. What frustrations do you see that could be God reminding you to invest in His kingdom over your own?
  2. How can you share your life with others this Christmas, and model Christ to others?
  3. Where can you give your resources this Christmas so you can know Christ more in his sacrificial giving?
