Midweek Clip: God’s generosity is revealed in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection


I tell you friends, when you begin to grasp
the reality, and again you might not be feeling it this
morning, but the greatest crisis you will ever face
in your life is the fact that you are dead in your transgressions,
that you are dead in your sin because of your rebellion against God. God made you to worship him, to love him,
to obey him, to delight in him, and we choose otherwise. We are selfish, we are self-centered, and
we are prideful people, and I say that out of a great love and passion
for those of you may have a hard time hearing that. But when you grasp the fact that God did not
flee in the moment of our greatest crisis, but rather sent his only begotten son into
the world and entered right into the heart of the crisis for us,
then your eyes begin to open up to the generosity of God. When you begin to see that Jesus himself laid
down, laid aside his greatness and became a servant,
he humbled himself to the point of death on a cross. When you see that, you begin to grasp the
generosity of God. When you see Jesus taking on our unrighteousness
so that he could give us his goodness, then you begin to get a taste of the generosity
of God. When you see Jesus rising from the dead, conquering
sin, Satan, and death and all the powers that are attributed to them, and gifting that to
you, then you begin to see the generosity of God in new ways. Friends, I want you to see this morning that
Jesus himself took on the greatest crisis you will ever face,
and there is no greater picture of his generosity than that. So when we look at King David and we see the
generosity that he’s holding onto, our hearts are now open to an even greater
experience of the generosity and the goodness of God. It’s in the gospel of Jesus Christ that
we get a clear picture of God’s greatness, of God’s goodness, and of God’s generosity.
