2 Corinthians 8: Although He was infinitely rich, He impoverished Himself for our sake

You have plenty of everything, after all – plenty of faith, and speech, and knowledge, and all kinds of eagerness, and plenty of love coming from us to you; so why not have plenty of this grace too?

I’m not saying this as though I was issuing an order. It’s a matter of putting their enthusiasm and your own love side by side, and making sure you genuinely pass the test. For you know the grace of our Lord, King Jesus: he was rich, but because of you he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.

2 Corinthians 8:7-9 New Testament for Everyone

 

in the Passion translation:

So make sure that you also excel in grace-filled generosity...  For you have experienced the extravagant grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that although he was infinitely rich, he impoverished himself for our sake, so that by his poverty, we could become rich beyond measure.
