Whether we are sent to be the only messenger Yahweh has yet sent to a group of people so deep in the jungles or mountains that we will never again see anyone who looks like us, or we have an assignment that seems so insignificant that anyone could do it, and probably better than us, we should be fully committed to Him and to the people He has blessed us with the privilege of serving.
We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God granted to the churches of Macedonia: during a severe testing by affliction, their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed into the wealth of their generosity. I testify that, on their own, according to their ability and beyond their ability, they begged us insistently for the privilege of sharing in the ministry to the saints, and not just as we had hoped. Instead, they gave themselves especially to the Lord, then to us by God’s will. So we urged Titus that, just as he had begun, so he should also complete this grace to you. Now as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all diligence, and in your love for us—excel also in this grace.
