Every year the people of Messiah celebrate Jubilee Sunday and reconsider what God’s Word teaches us about giving offerings. God doesn’t have rules about giving offerings. Instead, he inspires us to a radical life of generosity by giving us the radically generous grace of Jesus. The gospel sets you free to give yourself away in radically generous expressions of grace.
As part of today’s worship, we will bring our offerings to the altar as a reminder that our offerings are a gift to God and an act of worship. Ushers will assist you if you need help with the stairs, or you can hand your offering to an usher.
Scripture: Two lessons on radically generous love and grace
New Testament Lesson: Romans 12:9-21
Gospel Lesson: Luke 6:2
