Aim (Main Teaching Point of the Passage)

To Learn that God empowers his own to graciously bless others

Specific Application Questions

1.       How are you available to be a vehicle for God’s grace?
2.       In what ways have you prepared yourself to bless others; be specific?
3.       God gives more than we can ask or think; how are you generous?
4.       How do you graciously forgive, and who do you need to forgive?

Principles to Remember

Christians are vehicles for grace
We need to be available for action
Generosity is an attribute of God and should be our attribute as well
God forgives us and we should forgive others.
