• Why Do We Give?

  • We Give As An Act Of Worship.

    Perhaps the most recognizable example of giving as worship is seen every year around Christmas time. Our nativity scenes and Christmas pageants include wise men giving gifts to Jesus. We find these magi worshipping by giving. (Matthew 2:11)

    We Give To Reveal God’s Likeness In Us.

    God so loved the world that He gave…God gave the greatest and most expensive gift ever...His Son (John 3:16). When we speak of our salvation we say we have been redeemed, bought with a price. As we walk in our salvation guided by the power of the Holy Spirit, we are to look more and more like Christ. Our God is a giving God therefore, we are to be a giving people. In addition, our God does not separate giving and loving, therefore neither can we. We are to give like God and love like God!

    We Give To Show (and grow) Our Trust in God.

    God promises to meet our needs; to care for us more than the birds of the air or the flowers of the field (Matthew 6:28-34). When we exercise our faith by giving, God is able to bless in a way that strengthens our faith. 
    And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. – 2 Corinthians 9:8 NLT

    We Give To Join With The Body Of Christ In God’s Kingdom Work In The World.

    The collective Church makes it possible for many to do what individuals can’t do alone. The Hebrew people were called to pool their resources to build the tabernacle. In the New Testament the church was led by the Holy Spirit to share all they had with each other (Acts 4:32-35). Giving is an investment in God’s work.
