10 Tweets on "Access" (2 Samuel 24:18-25; 1 Chronicles 29:1-19)

1/ God’s access to our hearts follows familiar pathways. One of those pathways is our money. (Mt 6:21)

2/ The road to happiness is clearly marked but seldom traveled. And that road is called generosity. (Acts 20:35)

3/  Some of you are giving, but you’re not experiencing God deeply and you’re not experiencing very much happiness. 

4/ How can I give in a way that gives God deeper access to my heart and greater joy in my heart?

5/ Giving that costs you nothing isn’t giving. 

6/ "Consecrate yourselves," give as an act of unconditional surrender. 

7/ Tim Keller: "Lord, I’ll serve you and I’ll give to you if you…,” whatever is on the other side of the “if” is your real god. 

8/ John Piper: “The giving of money for the house of God was the work of God to reveal God so that we would stand in awe of God.”

9/ Your heart will be most engaged in your giving when you are most engaged in that to which you give.

10/ Give as a response to God's grace. 2 Corinthians 8 - An Act of Grace = Giving
