    Motives #2
    Series: Motives
    2 Corinthians5:14-17 and Hebrews 12:7-11
     
    The Point: Our motives for generosity in the realm of obedience should come from an outflow of our realization that God Himself was the One who modeled generosity long before we did.
     
    Motivations for our obedience are not just Earthly, they are eternal. Our obedience is for the Glory of God.
     
    God disciplines us to bring about obedience.

    A little more progression to Holiness
     
    I Peter 2:9-12
     
    The Point: While understanding our place in the overall story of the Kingdom of God is necessary, it also creates for us a distinction from the other peoples of the Earth. That distinction leads us to one word: glory.
    I. To understand God's glory, we must reflect God's glory.
    II. To reflect God's glory, we must accept God's calling upon us.
