Total Service (1 Corinthians 16:1-4)

Paul has just been encouraging the church to always abound in the work of the Lord. The church will not fully abound in resurrection power till she fully abandons herself to His service! and as we come to the final question that Paul addresses for the Corinthians concerning the collection we see the greatness of service to God with all we have and all we are. The whole chapter addresses three areas of stewardship: personal resources (1-4), ministry opportunities (5-11 which really hit on the “Where” of service), and variety of people (10-24 which really hits on the “Who” of service) – these are the greatest resources the church has today, and they must not be wasted. This is what “Always abounding in the work of the LORD” looks like. It looks like the church fully abandoning herself to His service! because Gospel ministry is total service to the LORD!
