Be Rich – Extravagant Service

About This Talk

The Bible says that we are saved to do good works. If you are a follower of Christ, then God has got good works stored up in advance for you to do. He wants you to be involved in meeting other people's needs and see service as a privilege. Find out how in this message from our Be Rich series.

About The Series

17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

1 Timothy 6:17

We demonstrate the love of God when we give, serve, and love others—both in our community and around the world. Together, we’ll unleash a wave of generosity. No-strings-attached generosity was the hallmark of the first-century church. It should be a hallmark of the twenty-first-century church too.

The apostle Paul told Timothy, ‘Command those who are rich in this present world . . . to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.‘ – 1 Timothy 6:18.

Most people want to make a difference but don’t know how. Be Rich makes it simple.

Through the Be Rich campaign we will come together to Give, to Serve and to Love individuals and organisations so that communities can be transformed. After all, our extravagant generosity toward others is the most appropriate response to God’s extravagant generosity toward us.
