Call to Worship for Extravagant Generosity

I’m currently preaching a series on Robert Schnase’s book, Five Practices of Fruitful CongregationsThis week we’re on ‘Extravagant Generosity’ and I’m using 2 Corinthians 9:1-2, 5-11 as our scriptural focus.

The Call
Our God, Creator and Sustainer of all life
   instructs us to give generously and cheerfully.
We come, giving the funds, time, and gifts God has given us
   cheerfully and without hesitation or pressure,
Trusting that in our upside-down life of the Gospel,
   our wealth is measured not by what we have but what we give away.
We give joyfully as an act of our faith trusting you great God,
   to bless your church, your people, and your creation through our giving.
