Who Is God?
How would you answer these questions of Agur?
Who has ascended into heaven, or descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name,
If you know?
Why did Agur ask those questions? What was he wanting us to learn or to think about? One thing I get from his questions is that my name cannot be offered as an answer to even one question. Therefore, I need to know that I am not God and should not act as though I am, but I should submit myself to Him who does all those things. DR
What moves one church to give generously, but another to hold onto their funds? The churches of Macedonia gave liberally, and Paul revealed why when he said of them, “And not only as we had hoped, but they first gave themselves to the Lord, and then to us by the will of God” (2Co 8.5).
Some Christians give themselves to the Lord, but will not give themselves to preachers of the Gospel. Some give themselves to preachers, but not to the Lord. Of course, some Christians do not give themselves to either one.
Yet, if you find Christians, and even a whole church, who give themselves to both, you have found heaven on earth.
What does your weekly giving reveal about you? DR
