The early church in Macedonia set an example of generosity that the Apostle Paul shared with believers across the world. Their example still inspires our actions today, because you can never out-give God.
If we are in Christ, we may be faithful or unfaithful, but we are ambassadors for Christ. And as ambassadors, we do not make up our own message; we do not have our own words to speak. We are given a message by the One who sent us.
