Journey To The Grave Service Recap

Journey To The Grave (Mainland) Sacrificial Giving

The journey to the grave is a journey of sacrifice.

Jesus Himself was the gift.

Jesus gave up his divine form to take up the form of a human; that wasn’t convenient.

You can’t wait until things are convenient before you give.

There will always be a season for sowing and a season for harvesting. (Gen 8:22)

Sow as often as possible (Eccl 11:6)

There’s always a harvest, irrespective of what you sow.

This is the mindset to have while sowing

• You need to plant good seeds.

• The best time to give is when you don’t have.

• If the money you have is not your harvest, then turn it into a seed.

• You need to sow on a fertile soil like church projects, pastors, mentors, parents, friends.

• Sow at whatever level you are, your seed is not small.

• You are bigger than what you sow.

• You can’t eat everything you earn.

• No one owes you anything.

• You need to have a heart of giving.

• You can’t give without being prayerful

• You will always have to give because God gives seed to the sower and bread to eat (Isaiah55:10)

1.  Giving begins with a cause.

– We’re saved to save others 

– Your money speaks for you in heaven when you give towards God’s cause

– Jesus’s disciples gave up what they were used to.


2. Giving entails sacrifice

– Giving entails service 

– You don’t give out of satisfaction 

– Jesus did everything on earth as a man helped by the Holy Spirit.

– Jesus showed us that it’s possible because  giving always calls for sacrifice.

– You haven’t given God anything until you have given him everything.


3.  Giving leads to life.

– You cannot continue to gather things to yourself without flowing out.

– Give freely what you receive.


4. Giving produces joy.

Philippians 4:10 – 14

– The more you give, the more satisfied you are.

– It teaches you contentment 

– It makes you partners in the ministry.

– It pays spiritual dividends.

– It grows your faith in God.


There’s always a reward for giving 

God does not owe, he rewards
