THE PROGRESSIVE PROGRAM
Presbyterian Church in the United States
"Neither said any of them that
ought of the things which he
possessed was his own "?Acts.
4:32.
The first lesson the early church learned was that what they had ? their possessions ?
must be consecrated to God
Jesus commended only one person
about money, and that was the widow
who gave all.
Jesus told the rich young ruler that
the one thing he lacked was to give all ?
consecrate his wealth.
Jesus taught by the parable of the
talents that all is the Lord's, and that he
would require an accounting of every
penny when he comes to judge.
Jesus taught by the parable of the
pounds that we are the possessors of
nothing; that whatever we have is God's,
and that He gives to whom He will.
The Lord called for all these early
Christians had ; they heard the call? and
gave freely, gladly, sacrificially.
The Lord is calling for a great deal
more of our money than we are giving.
Will we hear the call as did those
early Christians?
